    Hi, I was looking for a n M2 helmet and i found this on the web. It has no longer the bales but it appers to be a d-bale. On the rear it has a nco insigna too. I am not an experto on the m2 shells so I would like to have your opinion on this.Click image for larger version.

    I would say not an M2, even with that small picture I can see no sign of a dimple on the rim.

    There's one on ebay at the moment which is probably another fake,will find the pics to add,but does look ok but then again I can never tell either way..............Jake.here are the pics,the heat stamp is 192? and has the dimples either side between the bales often associated with m2 shells.

    I must admit Jake that does look like a good one, but I would like to have seen a nice close up side view of those bales and who in their right mind would have cut of the straps, strange thing to do! The straps help to authenticate them to.
    I would be interested on how much this makes mate.
    Here is another one which looks like the steel pot is ok but what will be putting people of it looks like its been mocked up. Sorry its beyond me how to upload the pictures.
