    Hello-
    Could someone please tell me what exactly I've got here? I always assumed it to be a Kelly Helmet but I'm having my doubts. I cannot find this type of chinstrap anywhere. The liner looks similar to a Mk II and bears the number 58. Along the inner brim is a serial number. What prompted this post was the discovery of a sort of seal or stamp type thing on the inside of the actual helmet. It is very faded and all I can make out of it is the letters "EKEU" and maybe a D. I bought it when I was a kid at WWII Weekend in Reading, PA. Could anyone venture a guess as to what I've got? I can certainly add more photos if needed. FWIW, this is my first post!
    Thank you! -JP
