    Is that a bolt on top of the helmet or am I seeing things? If it's a bolt it could be a ww1 helmet that was "updated" into a M-1917a1 for service in early ww2
    looks like an early large head liner screw head, the early WWII MKII helmets had large screw heads.

    Hi Casey,
    Yes you can see the bolt in the top as said in the thread it had a 1940 rotted liner in it, so it was also used in w.w.2, but still a good little helmet. Militarymania, you will find it is a Mk1 as the helmet you discribe with no edge, ie a raw edge is an A Patt helmet,
    brought out in 1915 ish, the mk1 is the first brodie with a rim.
    thanks dave.

    Nice find Dave ! Im sure its a Brodie re-worked for ww2. I think those stress marks on the forming of it seem to be common on ww1 lids.
