    Hi, and welcome. This is an m42 police helmet. I was offered it about one year ago and as far as I can remember I thought the shell and decals were original. I don't believe the chinstrap is period. The chap explained that there had been another badge placed over the police badge and that was how the holes were caused. The chap was an e bay seller. I think from memory the decals were original but it is hard to tell without close up pics. Please post some if you have them and one of the many experts on this forum will help. ( I am not an expert ) cheers

    sound like i met the same guy , yes was told the holes over the decal was from another badge, the decal was only found when they removed it for cleaning. I know the chin strap is not original. So what would I have to take close ups of ? If possible what is the Value of this helmet ? Was the guy you met from the midlands at all . thanks

    Hi, I was also told that the decal was discovered during cleaning. If you want a Valuation on this lid, you would be best to take close up pics of the decals and post them. I am sure that some other member with a better mind than mine will assist. I do like this helmet though!!! What is the maker mark.

    Thanks

    Just a quick question, what type decal would have been attached to the metal of the helmet to cause the holes. I have never seen anything like it before. I'm not questioning the helmet just puzzled by the holes. Thanks, John
