    Here's the forementioned Helmet at £102,finishes tomorrow,what do you think.............
    the seller of this is a well known one to avoid and the net is not correct for an early war helmet, walk away from that one.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Well I think I did ok in the end,early Home Guard mk2 with smooth brown paint inside/out.no shell/Bale stamp marks visible (annoying),nice ghosting from net,however someone replaced the retaining nut,so whether the liner is original to the shell I just can't say,liner mk1 1/39 by JSW,my quest for an early mk2 textured Army Lid continues...comments welcome in advance.

    Looks a good one Jake and the net has been on it for a long time, very cool.

    For me, that is just as nice as an army Mk2, with the net ghosting, a great looking home guard helmet.
    The loss of the nut was quite common, that's why they started using the elastic stop nut. If the non military nut is old then that's fine, if new, then maybe I would replace it.

    Could be an F&L made shell, who's stamp is normally to the rear of the helmet, not by the chin strap lugs.

    I have one with the wrong nut, not a problem and just part of its history but as Aaron said, change it if you want, they can be found.
