    Hi Guy's.

    Here is my latest Evil-bay purchase, which I can only describe as, a weird set up

    Late war shell, with "Custom" chinstraps, early 70's liner, late 70's / 80's cover (I don't know what it mean's e.g. DPDO EXCESS ??????)

    The MP paint job ,is interesting as I did'nt expect it!!!!

    I like the paint job. No dead straight edges to the letters, and it looks all the better for it.

    Hi Harry.

    Thanks mate,I have been reliably informed,on another forum,that this lid,is suspect.....Maybe redone,for a reinactor, or similiar.

    I do not think it's original, but the shell it'self is late war, rear seam(1945 +) a real kettle of fish this one,funny enough it's the helmet cover ,I found the most interesting,due to the ,markings.

    Collecting lid's a funny old game

    I have a battered european clone M1 I got off e-bay, It was so bad I was the only one stupid enough to put a bid on it! But I like it all the same.
