    Default Help with British Mk2 Helmet

    Hello, I just wanted opinions on the authenticity of the paintwork on my British helmet. It looks right to me think its probably all Ok, but due to its good condition I just wanted to be sure. The liner is 40 dated, the shell has been stamped to faintly to be readable. The colour is dull greenish gray, rather than brownish. Many thanks, Douglas

    Hi Douglas, I think it looks fine, colours do vary quite a bit on these helmets. Sometimes they look quite grey others they look green.Helmet would have been used on the home front, a nice clean example.

    Thanks for that. Are you saying it is not an army issue helmet?

    Army helmets are khaki green or dark brown textured paint on the outside, from about 1941/42 textured inside as well.
