    Question Brodie / to buy or not to buy?

    Finally got an opportunity to buy a Brodie.. Chin Strap probably does not belong here - but what do you think about the rest?

    Genuine one? Markings: AMO II 1941. (could be possible AMC??)

    Hi Robert, welcome to the forum!

    The rest of the helmet looks fine.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It looks fine to me, I suspect the chinstrap may be a replacement when the original snapped, as happened at times.

    It is not a Brodie, it is a Helmet steel MKII.

    The price is OK for a helmet of this type.

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    No worries, lots of people do the same thing and in fact I have done it in the past. Also, for future posts can you please use the forum picture uploader as it is often the case that external picture hosting sites lose the pictures sooner or later and that then makes the thread useless for other users.

    Welcome to the forum Robert.

    Brodie is still a common name for it though, despite being technically incorrect. I'd go for it for 50. I bought a 43 one in similar condition, but with a camo net for that price.

    Bargain at $50, AMC, Austin Motors Co, although looking a bit mint the chin strap is the correct one for a 41 dated army Mk2.
