    So mates i have a final question.My friend douglas had said that this helmet maybe discoloured for rust,i think he has a point.I have noticed that there are paint drops at some points.Is it normal?Can be a ww2 era repainted or Douglas is right? Thanks for the help

    Ohhh! I am feeling my heart beating fast from the stress.The reason?I just found for sale a tommy helmet that has the same shiny green paint with my helmet's inside.The seller says that is a Home front/home guard helmet.Can it be mine the same?.Some photos...( also i took off the liner and i found a label attached to it)Click image for larger version.

    The sticky label is within the last 10-15 years or so.........

    Yes, I don't think that sticky label is relevant. It looks like a modern pricing tag but your helmet is an original war time one, so I imagine its just fallen in there and got stuck to the lining..

    As to the stamp I believe douglas is 100% correct they are quality control stamps the Canadian C/Broad arrow stamps are different the arrow should always be inside of the C
    IMO it stands a good chance of being a combat grade lid it still looks to me that it has being over painted at some time in it's life as you can see were the paint was running down the helmets exterior now weather this was done post war or war time is another question of course but I like it

    Kozowy thank you for the comment.I dont know if that was rust of a ''gold'' paint.Whatever it was ,where is only a little left as I took it of to present the real paint( i dont think that a factory painted so bad a helmet with the paint running down as you said)
