hello, the marking is ET 68, ET is the factory the helmet was manufactured and 68 is the size of the shell. Which is a large size, one of the biggest.
Thanks for pointing that out, Paul! Love learning about this stuff...
Can you upload the pics to the forum please.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
Could you post a straight on close up of the decal? Remember to use the macro mode on the camera. The decal on this one is 100% correct. I am asking for the picture only because it is a very nice nearly complete decal that will make a great presentation. Also, there should be a number, usually 4 digits, neck stamped in the apron which is known as the "lot" or "batch" number. It is best if you post that with the maker/size stamp. Thanks in advance.

Hi, the liner is unusual being only 8 fingers for a 68 shell ( usually 9 or 9 & bit ) that's why it looks shrunk. The colour would be more discernible without the glare - looks fine but just wanted to see the finish better.
