    It is indeed an early M56....later models have softer fewer-tongued liners with sponge-like pad buffers. There's usually a stamp to the inner rear (year of manufacture) and the number and style of rivets changed during production....I can't make out the rivet types on this model......

    'Needs a clean tho. ;-)

    Yup, nice M56!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Was this type of helmet ever issued in WWII ? As a late war replacement helmet ?
    Cheers Chris
