    Hi Wayne, interesting this one. Doesnt look like the wire has been pulled through the chinstrap bales or vent lugs recently and the wire coating looks like its seriously discoloured.
    Very cool Wayne
    take care

    Wow, very interesting indeed Wayne. You certainly called it. When I saw those first two photos, I thought no way! Then when you flipped it over and showed the bottom, I was blown away. Nice trigger pull.

    If it weren't a relic, it would probably be deemed fake.........!

    Absolutely amazing. What is the coating on the wire? Is the wire a solid solo strand or multi stranded?

    Cheers guys to be honest the pics on ebay were a bit small and i thought hhmmmmm i'm 75% certain its original and at 27.00 i simply could'nt let it pass me by...i like to collect helmets that have that special something ...one of the best relics i've had was a m40 that had a mosquito net tucked into the liner band and overtime the net had left Hexagon pattern allover the Out'er shell very cool i thought..i mean how many good condition helmets have you seen with these camo attachments still in place
