    Default WWII British Paratrooper Helmt

    Hello, looking for a second opinion on this helmet please. Shell appears to be a MkIII, date of the liner would be correct to that, black padding ect...However there is no size listed within the liner between the date stamp like all other examples of BMB liners I have seen in 1943-44 styles. Also it is too hard to tell if the paint if war time or post war added, does show age but no way of knowing originality. Please let me know if you see any red flags. Thank you

    As said the stamp doesn't look right and looks post war painted, Aaron should be along to confirm.

    Most likely a post war HSAT, with a fake maker/date stamp. Which now makes it neither one thing or the other.
    Here's a picture of an original Mk2 HSAT date/maker stamp.
