    Congratulations . It looks like a totally original British G&S para helmet. Classic G&S features. The net and type of scrim used suggest it was used by a Canadian.

    Hi Steve this helmet is still sitting on the block as the gavel will not fall for another three days it is currently sitting just over $700.00 Cdn .
    Oddly enough the seller has removed his description over the last couple of days since I checked it last time were he had described some of the details I believe one to be the possibility of a replaced spanner bolt there was something else as well but it is lost to me know so IMO This one really needs to be scrutinized you will find a link below to the auction.
