Super thanks for your info.

I think this is the normal price for this or not?

Or how much is this one normally priced?

Thank you in advanced

I am not an expert but, and correct me if I am wrong, but I think that that is a U.S helmet. In the second to top picture of that round bolt is only in U.S helmets. The sort of folded outwards thing is in British ones.

this only applies to WWI helmets, by WWII British helmets have rounded rivets

It may be the photograph, but those last 2 digits of "1942" on the liner...especially the "2" look a tad unusual...... I can't recall seeing a "2" like that before

Looks a bit like a 9 that has been tampered with?

I hope we're wrong....but liner switching is common...it happened at the time and ever since...but some folk play around with liner markings...it never ceases to amaze me how many screwdrivers slip ALWAYS over the last character of a 194? dated liner......there's gotta be a law of probability on that one...always the last character...but the "4"'s always untouched....amazing!!

No different to the German stuff if they can get away with it. I have a British para helmet that has an army number from the 60s 70s in it yet it is war time dated. I remember a pal that had a 'turtle back' issued but with a watrtime liner in the 1980s so I guess it happened but this is IMO tampered with and that is a different thing all together? Mix and match can happen!

I'm pretty sure my tin hat in training had the high rivets, it definitely had a MKII liner because the cross pad was in a poor state with a longer than usual bolt that could often be felt.

How long did BMB make liners? I thought they stopped in 1945.
