    Hi everyone!

    Thank you very much for the kind replies!

    Is this the chin strap I'm looking for?

    Nice find! A trash heap where?
    My family owns a recycling facilty in New York. Militaria comes in ALL the time. I've also gotten an M35 DD and a Type 90 netted Japanese helmet from the facility... among tons of other things!

    I'll take a look again at the markings. Maybe I had a dyslexic moment...

    That looks like the right chin strap to me but I'm not sure of the detailed differances between the Brit strap and the Canadian Strap. Here is a photo of my CA MKII, the chin strap has no markings on it that I can see.

    LOL, fair enough... unfortunately, she doesn't put on my helmets too often. These are the only other pictures I have of her with militaria:






    I'm taking her to shoot my M1 Carbine sometime soon (her first time ever shooting!)... we'll see how that turns out!

    Nice Ray-Bans................!

    An M1 Carbine will be easy and fun for her to shoot. Forget the Garand
    - it will knock her around, and she may not enjoy it much............!

    The lid has been ID'd correctly several times as to maker and such.
    It is in very good condition, and with a strap should sell for
    at least $50 to $70. ( Newer photos worked for me ! )
    Regards,


    Steve.

    I wish that was a real Garand, Steve... it's a rubber movie prop from The Pacific. A family friend starred in that series and he gave it to me!

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the kind words and words of warning when it comes to shooting with my girlfriend... I've promised her an afternoon at the premium shopping outlets in return for an hour at the indoor gun range.

    She's a pain in my butt sometimes, but I love her. We're flying out to Denver, Colorado this weekend for a wedding!


    Sorry for getting sidetracked. I'm glad I found this helmet!
