    Default Possible brazilian M1

    Hi, sorry for the late answer but now I've discovered how to post pics here.

    This helmet came from a brazilian army auction. It have Manganese edges and rear seam, Nš 121H.

    Have wrote in pencil Sargento Bernardo, but I don't know why.

    I would like to specify the month of 1945 he deserves.

    I guess it possible been used by FEB and I'm hopeful.

    Thanks

    Yes between the 1 and H there's a gap,if the heatstamp was just 121 then it would be an early front seamed Helmet which its not,most likely there but lightly stamped.
    With Regards Jake.
