    The helmet it self looks ok but the 44 stamp looks like it was added later to push the price up ,looks to newly stamped in the leather and funny how the 19 and makers stamp are very worn but the 44 is so fresh .Most likely a 1950s helmet with new added stamps

    Lid is suspect !
    I'd look for a clearly marked one.

    I think the stamp, or what's left of it, 44, is ok. But what's more worrying is the green paint on the inside rim, hard to tell if it's the same inside the dome, but that is post war, probably a 50's shell.
    It's also been repainted outside, with the date stamp inconclusive & the green paint I'd leave it.

    I also think the stamp is ok, I have had couple of these where the 44 is clearer than the other half of the stamp. The one shown in Tinlids photo shows the 44 with deeper impression. The alumimium band does not look to fit well which may point to it being swapped.

    Hi Madds I have been watching this one as well out of curiosity and I completely agree with Aaron and Gary at the best it is a reworked late war example and IMO it has the dark shade of post war green applied here are a couple of shots of mine for comparison.

    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 !!!!!
