    It's always very nice to see a helmet with the interior preserved in this condition, complete with its liner and chinstrap. The stamp in the dome is the steel mill code (letters) and smelting lot number. The altered chinstrap lug is interesting - likely done to keep the chinstrap from slipping off of the lug.
    What are you talking about ?
    The helmet shown is a nice WW I camo but it does not have a liner.

    I am somewhat puzzled. These chinstrap lugs look perfectly standard.

    Obviously a mix-up on RanoMukhi's part.....we will see, otherwise a fine M16 Cammo shell executed in the regulation style as laid down in the July 1918 regulations.....regulations prescibed the use of 3 colours, yellow ochre, rust brown and green, applied in patches and seperated by a black finger width stripe. It was adapted and applied according to the seasons and often with great artistic licence ! The helmet will indeed have a heat lot stamp inside the crown indicating the origin of the rolling mill where the steel is from...there will also be a maker and size marking usually near to one of the M91 style chinstrap mounts, for example "ET64"...yours looks to be a size 62-64, indicated by the stepped ventilation lug, have a look and see if it is there....
    Prost ! Steve.

    You must be looking at a different helmet to that shown in this thread?

    I have always liked these WWI camo helmets.
