    Stay away from those shops ,they do not care about history or the vets only about money.

    Indeed. This item is on eBay right now.
    Poor bugger will never get his money back.

    The liner is a Dutch one. Made in 1990 by Schubert Helme in Germany for the Dutch. The shell is not Dutch, wrong chinstrap. The shell could be a Euro clone, but just as easily a US one. Check on the inside of the peak. If you see some figures it almost certainly is US. Could you make a pic of the capital in the rear?

    I am curious!

    Cheers,

    There is no number stamped any where on the inside / rim / outside of the helmet.
    I have photoed the D and circled it in red it maybe just a scratch. but seams to be to clear to be a scratch. the photo is taken on my phone i will get a macro lens photo in daylight

    i gave the helmet a scrub out today , there are no marking what so ever on the inside. not even ones that should be on the M53. And the D i thought was on the back is a scratch.
