    Default Canadian MK2 with net

    Hi guys,
    as always, I need your help: I have this Canadian Mk2, to me it looks ok, even after reading your previous post on the subject, but I'm not an expert on these helmets and I would like know your opinions.
    The dual tone net is mounted securely under the liner, but I managed to read the mark inside the shell:
    G.S.W. A A
    MK I 1941
    while the liner is V.M.C. II 1942.
    I await your comments.

    greetings
    Roberto

    Looks good to me Roberto, a very nice Canadian MKII helmet. Mark will "chip in" and give you more details though. Leon.

    Hi Roberto a lovely example and all looks original to my eyes it is not uncommon to see 1941 dated helmet bodies fitted with 1942 dated furniture.
    The net looks to have been on this example for some time and shows the expected wear around the outer rim which is indicative of a field used example as is the shine, discolouration and wear in around the area of the dome which would suggest the helmet has been placed up side down on numerous occasions.

    Regards Mark

    I was waiting with interest your comment and what you say is a good news; in my area it is very difficult to find these helmets and even more if complete and in good condition as this!
    I'm glad I found a nice example for my collection.

    cheers

    You are welcome Roberto it is a nice Helm and I would be happy to have it in my collection I have noticed a change in the market place over the last year or so and good combat grade and flashed examples are starting to get scarce on the ground and the price has risen considerably at one time they were a very affordable helmet to add to ones shelf but IMO those days are now long gone.

    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 !!!!!
