    The colour & texture does vary quite a bit, can't be sure if it's been repainted like this 2nd AA Mk2,
    or whether it's factory finish, but nice either way.

    I am sure Aaron meant on MKII's in general that the colour and texture can vary, not on your lid.

    Looks good, very clean underneath.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    again at risk of not getting it right, but on the AA lid shown, the insignia is sunken into the paint and the easiest way for that to have happened is that it was applied and then masked off whilst the textured paint was added later, rather than they dug out a recess to add the decal.

    Very nice Jake, TTC (Teddy Toy Company) were not the first to make the MKII liner but it has a I over the 1939 so maybe the pad has been replaced, any way a great helmet.

    It looks a fine a Mk II to me as well Jake and condition can not always be used as the definative factor in judging originality as I can show many a Canadian example that are 70 + years old in Mint to near mint condition so much is dependant on the conditions in which they were stored so the hole helmet has to be judged including the furniture which seem to match the condition of the helmet body .
    Jerry brings up a rather good point as to the flash being recessed rather deeply and the other differance that catches my eye right away is that the Mk I liner retention bolt on Aarons has as well been painted over which would suggest a repaint IMO .

    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 !!!!!
