    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    By the looks of the rim join it is made by BMB (Briggs Motor Bodies)

    Hi George all looks good from were I am sitting here one of the Mk IV's in my collection as well has the same matt black finish the only concern I have is the possible absence of a few buffers around the liner .

    Regards Mark

    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    I don't think any rubber buffers were on the crown strips on sizes 7 1/2 - 8.

    I read somewhere that the black lids were for police (military?) use in Germany!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks guys !

    Liner size is 6 1/2 and it is made by FFL - Lift the Dot type.

    As to shell markings - I can't see any - the paint coat is pretty thick.

    Here are more photos of the liner and it looks like all the tabs are present.

    Thanks - I know the original liner photo wasn't too great.
    Btw - GTA area flea markets tend to have more Bulgarian helmets than anything else :-)

    Here's some pics of what looks to be black Mk4's, although some might be the light & reflection making them look black.
    All from Ireland apart from the soldiers lying down which is in Berlin.
