    Had a good day at the flea market, picked up 5 helmets, but one is Japanese. Here they are:


    I was told this one is pretty rare because it has a KW sweatband:









    This one is cool because it's a kids toy helmet, but made of your typical steel.

    Nice helmets! Is the one above the red one a French F1 Para helmet? I have a few french F1 helmets and have the same liner design and construction.

    Very good haul you got there!

    The M1 looks to be Korean War issue,possibly a CAPAC liner judging from what I made out in the photo . French F1 ( one of my favourtie lids) , the toy helmet is particularly nice, and would be very collectable to the right person, a specific niche for toy helmets as I understand it.
