    Default Can anyone help identify this helmet?

    Just wondering if anyone can help me identify this helmet. Inside the helmet there is a small single crown marking (not stamped into the metal). No other marks.

    I am thinking it will be post war? and from one of the European countries that still have a Royal family - Denmark? Sweden ??

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    This example was made sometime between 1937-1944. However with 99,99% certainty this was made during the war. '42-'44 much liklier than '39-'41.

    Would be interested to hear how you can spot the difference between an early and late war production Engman.

    Apparently I can't as I said what was likliest. It's all about logics. Or "odds" if one wants to simplify it. It could have been produced 40-41, but it's (very) far from as likely as 42-44. Or to simplify it, the odds are very low for it to be early war production.

    Or an estimated guess based on good knowledge about Sweden and our industry during WW2, some might call it.
