    It's a rear seam swivel bale. Looks as though it was repainted for KW use.

    HI! help me pls... I have the M1 shell antimagnetic and stainless steel rim to the rear and no fix bale... I think helmet Postwar. Front Stamp: 1 2542

    sorry,no speak English

    Nick, please correct me of I am miss-speaking here but if the shell is rear seam and is stainless then it can NOT be a US M-1 I'm pretty sure. From what I have read ALL stainless rim US M-1s are front seam, it was not until about a month after changing away from the stainless rim that the the seam was moved to the rear, these two changes did NOT happen at the same time. With that said, I know that a couple of the clones have a rear seam stainless rim, Belgian and Austrian, possibly others.

    Menace, are you sure the shell has a Stainless Steel rim? It is hard to tell from the photos but it would make more sense if it was not a stainless rim. Also, the first digit of the heat stamp, is it a number "1" or the letter "I"?

    RIM Is Not stainless steel, from the Same material as the shell. Not the helmet EUROPIA clone .. I'm sure.

    Thanks Menace, that makes more sense....it's a US M-1 for sure. Indicating that it had a stainless rim was making it confusing. The shell looks to be a low dome to me, making it a 1960's or later shell, heat stamp looks to indicate the same but let some of the others that know more about these chim in before you take my word for it.
