    Nice M-1 Jake and one I would quite happily display in my collection as you well know I as well really like that been there done that look as well in my helmets .
    I could not help notice the position of the stress crack under the fixed bail an odd place to see this phenomena and a first for me they are much more predominant on the back of the shell IMO just adds to this example .

    Regards Mark
    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!
