    Welcome and a great way to start with a beautiful looking early Fixed Bale Helmet and quite a rare Inland Liner to boot,this I think is how most would like to find a set with hardly any wear and totally factory original in every way including the Liner retaining the early smooth darker olive drab paint which has sustained seven decades,thanx for sharing and hope you can learn a little to along the way...............
    With Regards Jake.

    Thanks for the feed back,and the info on the liner.Im keen to read some more on here and start searching for another, tho the australian $ is a bit of a bugger atm so may have to turn my attentions a little more more local

    thanks guys, im always open to taking hints there is a small amount of light surface rust above the rim on one side im guessing its probably best just to leave it or has anyone had luck removing it and keeping the paint intact?

    I would leave the helmet be ie...rust is part of the history of this helmet and a lovely example of an M-1 it is.

    Regards Mark
    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    If you touch the rust,then the originality has gone,and it will bug you like forever,trust me I know..............
