    Nice M52 with matching net ! Used by both BGS and Police sometimes with decals............
    Prost ! Steve.

    Very nice BG,thanks for showing this one. I find this one particularly interesting due to the shell being of the Quist M40-53 type, whereas the liner especially the leather work being of the type seen in the Linnemann & Schnetzer M35-53 type model, odd but very interesting variety, the liner does appear to be very clean,so I wonder if this one was fitted into the shell?

    This looks just like my "Linnemann & Schnetzer" LS 64. Rolled edge like an M40 with a pressed vent hole but a little larger in diameter than an M40 and I think placed just a little different. Same liner for sure. I posted pictures of it yesterday on a post about Finnish helmets for reenactment.
