    Thanks, Steve. It was a pleasure dealing with Stewarts Militaria. I'm very happy with it. Thanks again for telling me about them.
    The camo helmet looks a lot better in hand. The pics don't do it justice. It's just a shell. No liner. I've always had trouble reading the mm. Looks like.. W66 and on the top it's R496. It's also named. Fischer II 2/110.

    Hey Helmetone,
    I know. My camera is junk! I did get some closeups but they looked bad. Sorry. A good camera is next on my list.

    I was just poking fun at ya, lol. I had much the same problem with a less than stellar camera, but it was all I had. My wife has a tendency to make off with the high end camera for taking pics of the kid, so I only get it when I can steal it back. Still, a great looking bayonet!

    Luke, your helmet mark "W66" is the mm for " Hermann Weissenburger & Co" in Stuttgart-Canstatt, they only made size 66. I have the exact same M16 helmet in my collection from that same maker !
    The mark "R496", indicates that the batch of steel from which your helmet was made, is from the rolling mills at "Stahlwerk Röchling" in Volkingen.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Excellent blade! I have always wanted one myself, but just have a standard butcher bayo at the moment. Got to be happy to be the owner of this one.

    WOW, Steve! Thanks for the information. Maybe we can get a look at your helmet one of these days. And again, thanks to all for your comments.
