    Default MK II Para in Indonesia

    I found this helmet in the antique market in my hometown solo. No stamp maker and no liner left. Much lighter than my brodie mark II and mark IV turtle helmet. And it's really comfortable when i wear it with my headset.
    Anyway my question is how do we know the age of this helmet?

    Without any markings, impossible to date. Could be wartime or 1950's.

    Sometimes there are makers stampings inside.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thank you! I'm extremely lucky to got this. Too bad i missed the dispatch helmet.
    Well it's depend, sometimes is really easy but sometime is hard.
    But i just got very lucky in collecting in this one year of collecting. I got 5 knil m38 model dutch helmet (2 made by milsco, 2 made by braat and 1 made by verblifa), 1 m30/32 japanese ex-snlf helmet, 2 braat made m35 stahlhelm (my favorite), 1 aluminium msa skullgard helmet, 1 medieval helmet, 1 singapore mc1 k-pot, 1 brodie mk II, 1 mk IV, and this mk II para.
    About m1 is really common i believe. The last time i went to the market i saw 3 m1. 2 in dark green color and 1 in white color. Only shells.
    And because it's really common, i tend to avoid collecting these.
