    Thanks for the info. I meant if the liner was refurbished, how you could identify the shell itself from a distance, the rim being uneven is helpful bit of info.

    Cheers,

    There's no easy answer. I can usually spot one, but I'm not 100% sure I could quantify it as to why. They just look different. I think this might be a case of what Friedrich-Berthold always says about his 'foetid woollens' - you just have to study pictures or real examples of the various Brodie shells, and just develop 'an eye' for them.

    Hoping i can help your dispute, compare it with mine MkII Helmet.
    Found in Crete, marked 1940, dessert color (i suppose). Color is the same inside and outside of the helmet.

    Well it never even entered my mind it was a MKI* conversion lid. I coupe of weeks ago I would have had a MKIII to sit it up against for comparison but not now. We're the hits in the war registry front line units or support only?
