    Default MkII Beach group ( Possible fake)

    This one is on ebay at the moment & is up to £101.36, now if I'm not mistaken is this a post war Belgium helmet. It looks very similar to a couple of pics I put on, info needed on brodie helmets page 4. I'm pretty sure it's Belgium, it looks like it has the countersunk for the nut & bolt. Any ideas?

    From what I can see it looks like a Belgian post war shell to me too.
