    Steve, the liner in your spahis/zouave helmet is from the 50's.

    You are correct, the stamp in the liner is post war type but I can't read the date, it is stamped for army use, so I think it is an original army helmet rather than one that has been put together for sale. I didn't know that when I bought it but I think I still would have as it was the only one I had ever seen at that point.
    Thanks, Steve.

    Hello,

    Some auction sites may show some but one needs to be carefull as many adrian are now "modified" for better sales.

    Colour, liner (the black one) and insignas are key éléments to look at, especialy when they are uncomon.
