    Thanks Ade. It was a gamble when I picked it up, but was a decent enough price that I could afford to be wrong.

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Thanks Horst. So jury is still out. As said, either way it makes a nice display. ☺

    Well this is the nearest I could find...one from a reserve catalogue.
    Looks like it could be a variation of both styles with the M18 helmet

    Still looking like a good period piece to me.

    Yes, and someone made a cast of the metal one and poured in plaster and wa-la a perfect copy of the original.
