    Default French M26 Reissue?

    Saw this yesterday in a shop window, did a little research and asked a couple of questions on here last night that prompted me to go back and take a closer look. Was not impressed when I saw this up close and personal but I know absolutely nothing about reissue helmets so I figured it was worth the time to post just in case there was something here before I write it off a junk.

    Thanks guys....three thumbs down is more than enough to convince me to leave this on the shelf. We don't collect German lids but was intrigued by the re-issue story behind these things so I thought we would take a look see. Again, thanks for the input and steering us in the right direction.
