ID:	431399 not only the liner was very lose in the shell the paint is too new too is my idea. The belgium m49 I like it too it has a late decal and the liner is original but somehow different not very rare but it can't be missed in a diverse steel helmet collection either,and I have bought another M49 but this one has a bit different liner and a early hand painted decal too, once I have this helmet it I put the two M49's together and make a clear photo of it you'll spot the interesting differences. But somehow even though they are not rare I got the feeling that they are getting harder to find (or is it this just me?) About the dutch m34 some idiot before me had rubbed the top of the lid with sandpaper, I think I'll buy a better one someday with a liner when I do I see them come by now and then.The tank helmet I think its from England, correct me if I'm wrong. The modeloZ helmet I like that one its really old the liner too, I've got the front emblem but the bird is missing its both legs ..too bad about that, but someone had offered me the same decal one new style and one older style both birds have their claws still I think I do that but they aren't cheap but what choice do I have? they are damn rare. Great to read your thoughts James, and don't worry I keep this up as long as I can

    Update! My UN helmet, I can't find much info about this lid, numbers in the steel helmet is VDN 1\85
    Is 85 the year 1985?
    The inner helmet says SW81 year 1981? odd that means that the Inner helmet is older?
    Please if you know more I would love to hear about it. ThanksClick image for larger version.

    Hello Hellschickie,

    You have a Dutch helmet made by Vereinigte Deutsche Nickelwerke in 1985 as it says in the rim. The liner itself was produced by Schubert Werke in 1981. I believe VDN never did produce liners for The Netherlands, at least not that I am aware of. Liners and steel helmets were often mixed.

    If you put this VDN shell next to an other M-1 clone, you'll notice a slight difference in shape.

    Nice helmet.

    Cheers,
    Emile

    Heel erg bedankt Emile dit geeft wat meer licht op de zaak betreft deze helm die ik nu heb.

    This gives me a good impression of the background of this type of helmet, I kinda worried that it wasn't original because of difference's of the years, but now I know that VDN did not make liners it all makes more sense to me.

    Do you know what kind of missions it was involved in the past, I am also curious of its history whats its been true..

    Oh and yes I also notice a slight difference in shape with my other M1 clones your right

    Cheerzzz

    Very nice and diverse collection. I particularly like the Swiss helmet design. It looks to me a combination of medieval and modern style. Of course, the DDR lid looks like Star Wars copied it. You need an Adrian helmet or two as well
