Looks to be a Mk2 .. with economy size nut and bolt for liner fixing ... therefore approx 1941 onwards I would guess at.
A standard army/ home guard MkII with gritty non reflective paint which are not as easy to get as you would think. Because of the faded nature of the paint it does give it a desert sort of look but it probably did'nt get there.
very nice just how i like them,regards minnie.
Thanks for the answers.
If someone has a helmet that saw action in the dessert I would love to see some photos.

[/COLOR][CENTER][COLOR=#ff0000][SIZE=3]URGENTLY LOOKING FOR: 1982 era Argentine military issue goggles. Fravida 109, and "Sanbuee" French lens type
[/SIZE]Have a look at my 20+ (so far, work in progress) albums for lots of M1's, rare liners and other stuff, including WW2British helmets, Falklands battlefield pickup helmets and let me know what you think!
Finally got the opportunity to buy a desert helmet, however the seller wants 130 pounds for it, a bit much in my head, but I don't know what these helmets usually are going for, so any advice? (by the way, the helmet is in good condition).
