Nice! I like the ones with the old badge.
I agree with you, the old version is the most beautiful, I regret missing the liner
I found one without badges, such as your example, and within it was mounted the liner of a German M35 helmet, also marked with the rbnr number
The M26 was my very first military item. I just bought it on Ebay for fun and then more and more stuff entered my holy halls. Then a cold war began between me and my girl friend: "Shoes vs. military items". But we arranged already a peaceful coexistence.
Well done RKKAFan, your solution seems very wise to me
Yes it happen some time. Not quite easy to find as most existing one were disasemble to get the german liner. To be kept as is. Most surely "liberation" or "resitance"
@RKKA, I knwo the feeling. That said, helmets are an investament that may help buying shoes. Oppposit is more difficult ; )
All the best
