    An interesting lid for sure. Can you tell what the coating is and are there any markings on the shell or liner that you can photograph?

    That looks very much like an "after market" nut and bolt holding the liner in place.

    Great looking camo.

    Hi, looks like quite a bit of sand has been mixed into the paint on application. I am not surprised that "chunks" have come away as it must be quite a brittle mix. A nice looking helmet for sure. Leon.

    A very nice Mk II showing heavy sand texturing and I agree Mark that the liner retention nut and bolt are replacements but look right at home like they have been there for eons as the nut is quite rough looking with rounded of edges .

    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 !!!!!

    The top looks burn to me or is it my eyes playing up

    The top has very heavy soiling ,giving it a blacked finish ,this may have been caused by heat as the inner top pad looks almost melted and has gone rock hard like a ships biscuit.The helmet shell is dated 1939 on the lugs and the liner is j.c.s&w 1939
