    Looks like a fairly standard, GSW, General Steelwares of Canada Mk II helmet. I have one dated 1942 Does it look like it was repainted at some point? Mine was, I think it's rarer to find them in their original colours.

    If the repaint is a semi gloss dark green, it was painted for post-war use. Nice complete example though!
