    thanks matthew yes the smg is there somewhere , robin ive just found an old pic of the stampings on my 62 dated tankie the poct size on my examples seem to be in a rectangular box ,the other tankie i have is czech made and feels much lighter than its soviet counterpart ,i notice on yours the leather chinstrap is dark brown ,from my own findings i believe this to be a trait of a soviet made helmet ,my czech straps are a light brown and seem inferior in quality Click image for larger version.

    Hi James, No sign of a boxed mark, The chinstrap and leather work are dark brown and of pretty good quality.

    Have started to pick up the odd piece of Iraqi kit as I come across it. Still looking for a decent marked helmet similar to the nice one you have.

    Thats very decent of you James, i will pm you. A RG helmet would be a great addition. I am a little cautious of these though as I have heard that normal lids are being jazzed up by the addition of a red triangle.

    your welcome robin and at least i know it will go to a good home i see your point and as with everything im sure the fakers will jump onto these if not allready ,the trouble is the m80's have such crude paintwork it would be very easy to add a triangle and age it up and nothing surprises me these days ,ive recently learned the british mk11 are being jazzed up to make a very healthy profit for the fakers
