    Helmets yay!! Looks like a Kelly helmet there. Is that an M16 I see off to the side? Are you taking offers or just posting them on the classifieds?

    No offense but
    Helmets posted for sale must be posted in the for sale section with prices.

    I don't think either of those helmets are actually examples of a WWI Doughboy helmet or a British Brodie

    The cork covered one is a US M1917A1 helmet dating from around 1936-1941.

    The smoother one I'm not sure about. It looks like a copy of a British Mk II from some other country post-WW2. Somebody here will ID it's origin for you I'm sure

    Pretty sure it's a post war Dutch clone of the British MkII, probably late 40's. The sunk in nut & bolt to hold the liner in & brown coloured liner makes me pretty sure.
