    A great pick up Mark, looks all good and the impact damage makes it an unusual example, most I have seen with damage are rusty relics.

    Now for the head scratching question,if of coarse anyone does actually know the answer to this,but the first 4440 produced were of mild steel,now how do you know or tell the differance between the forementioned and the slightly later non-magnetic steel war office pattern.
    With Regards Jake.

    My guess would be with a magnet.

    Smashing helmet Mark, super rare, liner in great shape, classic 2 piece chinstrap with claw buckle, smaller bales. I understand the liner is slippery as heck especially on a sweaty noggin'. Very nice..
    Wondered if you could tell us if it is indeed a magnetic helmet. cheers, K
