Opinion on this CDN Mk.II

Article about: It has an incorrect liner and nut and bolt, looks like a British nut and bolt if real at all, shell is good. I do not like the net either as the Canadian ones, for the better part were tight

    Default Opinion on this CDN Mk.II

    Hi Guys,

    Would like to know what kind of liner and chin-strap on this CDN Mk.II.

    It's first time for me to see such liner/chin strap. Post war?

    All I have are these photos.

    A nice early shell, but the liner looks to be a repro or maybe a foreign one, chin strap might be British.

    Thank you for the quick response, Aaron !

    How about the net?

    Not 100% sure on the net, not that I'm saying it's wrong.

    Thank you again, Aaron.

    I have a rather high interest on this piece, still thinking if I should take a chance....

    Hi Taka I am sitting in the airport so all I have is my smart phone no access to reference material I like Aaron really like the shell but IMO the liner is not Canadian I am really unshur what it is I do have a nagging feeling though it is European post war I am positive I have seen this type of liner before .
    As to the chinstrap hard to get a good look on my little screen but Ithink I have a Canadian Mk II at home with this type of chinstrap and buckle unfortunately I cant give you a definate answer till I gey back next week on that .
    The crucifix pad looks ok but I really do not like the liner retention nut and bolt I would hold off and wait for an unmolested example .
    Or if you would like I may be of some assistance in helping you locate an early Canadian Mk II to add to your collection .

    Regards Mark K
    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 !!!!!

    Perhaps best to wait for an untouched example as they can still be found for sensible money.


    Whatever its just an opinion.
