Helmet ET 66
I have just got this helmet, it is stamped ET 66. I this it is a firehelmet (the edge around the helmet) ?. The green paint is not new, it has been there a long time, the helmet has oxided through the green paint. More info about the helmet ?

Hi, it is indeed a "beaded" M40, indicating that it failed ballistic standards at the factory. It also has a civil liner fitted which is correct. As for the green paint, it may have age to it, but I doubt it is from a WW2 vintage. Leon.

Thank you for your additional info,we will never know about the paint, but that doesn´t matter that much, the helmet is nice :-)
