This is my first post here.
I've got a British looking helmet that is driving me crazy .... I've spent several hours on-line and at the library trying to identify it! I hope someone here can help me.
The helmet is grey/black with a sandy texture. It has all the inards of a British MkII, however, both chinstrap lugs are stamped MkIII 1943, but it is not a turtle helmet. One of the cradle arms is marked
7&1/2. I have looked at every square inch of the helmet under a strong magnifying glass, but can find no other markings. The only thing that i can imagine is that if it was lightly stamped, that the textured paint is covering any markings. Also, it does not have a strong magnetic attraction
Can't get pics to upload.
Thanks for any help given.
