    Default Opinions on M26 Adrian Helmet

    I picked this up recently to have an example of a french helmet in my collection, and I want to know your guys opinion on it. The badge doesn't set flush, but the pins are not copper, and you can tell the badge was in place for a while as the paint is faded underneath. also, It might not show in the picture, but there is rust in some places, so if it was a repaint, it wasn't recent

    here are some pictures. The main thing worrying me is the lack of makers marks

    these were sold by International Military Antiques a few years ago, they are recent put togethers by the importer for resale as French M26 Infantry helmets

    they repainted Belgian helmets and added the badges, probably repro

    the shells were originally painted black and used by Belgian police, I think the importer had them repainted because many of these showed a lot of rust

    it's a fake not original
