    Thank you all very much for all the help I bought the helmets for an ok price!

    I like them, no matter what time era they are from. I feel like they are a bit of history.

    they all look great i like the last one on the right as it has both types of J hook on the chin strap

    if you ever have the time could you possibly take some good pics of each helmet it would be good to see them each in good detail

    all looking good there should be maker stamps on the inside crown of the liners please see here for the sort of thing you're looking for http://warrelics.eu/forum/helmets/ro...-makers-22988/

    also if you have a look to the front on the inside around the peak area of the shells there should be some numbers stamped into the metal called heat of the stamp numbers these can be used to give a rough date of manufacture but as they're all front seamed they will be of WW2 manufacture.

    on the inside around the peak area of the shell on one of the helmets ( one of those with the front seam) it says 872B. In the other one it says 01 D?? (a little bit more diffuse). The third helmet with the two hooks on the chin strap it says nothing at all(?) And I cant find any seam at all...

    well the 872B one is around March 1944 manufacture the second one cant help with without all the numbers as for the third one there must be a seam some where either to the front or back it just must be well hidden as for the numbers there were occasions this was either missed in production or it ended up else where sometimes even turning up on the outside which if thats the case you'll not find it.

    any chance of a close up of the paint finish on the outside of the steel shells ?

    Here some pic from helmet number 1


    Liner marking.


    The front seam must be under the paint in front.
