    Hi Dmax it is a nice Mk II HSAT and I would gladly display it on my shelf and as stated it is very probably a MOD post war refurb IMO they are quite desirable and do bring a decent dollar on E-bay you will have no problem selling this example don't list it to low and or put a reserve bid on it if you are going to go down this road though as E-bay can be a bit of a crap shoot some times as to getting the price you want .

    Well no! It's stamped BMB which is British Motor Bodies 1943. The war started in 1939 and so it ended after 6 years in 1945 so obviously looks like someone was sleeping during a history lesson!

    This is not an obvious fact there are many people that can not tell you the year WW II started and Ended and OBVIOUSLY the OP is not a collector on military.

    Well said Mark. I had also noticed that this newish member posts with an abrupt manner that some would find rude. It has been noted and is being watched.

    I'd go more than 30 for this example even with the post war repaint as it is part of its history and shows it continued in service for many years post 45, which a lot of them did. some collectors don't value them as much as untouched WWII examples which is correct, but still a good addition to any British helmet collectors collection.

    Lets not forget that cosmetically it is mostly a post war lid with post paint and the other refurbs. It is also not unheard of that sometimes numbers stamped on items are not a date, so assuming 1943 means it is WWII is not always a given, especially to non collectors and even then I have seen collectors get it wrong, which is why even they sometimes ask what might seem like dumb questions, I know I still do it sometimes.

    Your doing this on purpose

    I never said that he was a collector either, I just knew when the war started and ended when I was 5 years old...
    Also I didn't know he was a new member I only read what he put up. This has gone too far, I haven't done much except put up a sarcastic comment?

    I bet everyone does it all the time
