Kris...it is an M16 model not an M18, evident by its M91 type chinstrap mounts on the inside skirt....M18 had chinstrap bails attached to the liner band.....this is a nice example, I would say a size 66 or 68 by the appearence of the vents..it should be maker marked on the inside of the skirt near to the chinstrap mount, for example "ET66".....
Prost ! Steve.

Okay thx guys for the information. But what's the value of the helmet?
I have no experiance with empty helmet shells because I never buy them, but I guess it can be something about 100 euros or so?
And more...I saw them changing hands for 300€ ... far to much imo.
Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
