    Default Need some help to ID an M1

    Hi I'm new to the forum I have inherited from my grandad a m1 helmet not sure if it's his or not. Can I get a little info on it as it is a composite helmet its not made of or has any steel on it. It coud be a fake that my grandad aquierd a few years ago. In the inside there is R8 stamped.

    Any info would be great

    Welcome! You will need to post detailed photos. What color are the liner straps?

    The straps are a light beige colour, there is no chin strap i've tried to do some research on google but cant find one of similar looks i.e where the rivets are on the side of the helmet.
