    The most common M16/17/18 helmets tend to be the 'E.T.' mm helmets as they made all sizes, plus the only model of the super rare M18 cut-away model.

    cricketchris1944, I didnt include Austro-Hungarian made helmets in the list above, but the 'Bear' logo is 'Berndorfer Metal Warenfabrik A Krupp A.G.' of Berndorf, Austria. They made the M18 Hungarian, M16 Berndorfer and variants, in size 64/66.

    I have been looking at other Bell helmets for a few months now .
    They all kind of look different from each other.
    Probably cheap labor or manufacturing.
    But this is the worst one I have seen.
    Could this one be a reject?
