    Nice WW1 American lid...far more common that British or Canadian ones...they bring a far lower price than the commonwealth ones

    Very nice lid that. I've noticed the U.S ones go for about half the price the commonwealth ones go for and have considered buying a British-made U.S lid from U.S Ebay. Sometimes even with the postal charges they are cheaper. I was following a beauty last week that went for approx. 74 but the seller wouldn't post overseas. You see some really interesting unit markings on the U.S helmets too.

    A couple of other signs for spotting the US M17 is the grey felt inside the liner, the stamping on the brim usually includes the letter Z and instead of a red Brodie stamp under the oil cloth there's a black ink stamp.

    That one looks a cracker, they're getting much harder to find in such a good condition and at an affordable price.
