    It's an M17. Metal liner band (m16 had leather) but chin straps lugs attached to the helmet instead of the band (as on an M18)

    Am assuming camo is original but I would like to see better pictures.

    Genuine Map, 100%.

    I put a replica strap on it so I could hang it up

    I guess the camouflage wasn't too effective.....Nice lid, though, with what must be a fascinating history to it-if we only knew!

    I was told the hit was from a British sniper, but who knows?
