    Paint doesn't look aged at all. What's with that crown on top lol

    I checked my ebay and had marked this seller as fav, with comment added as caution. But can't remember why.

    This helmet strikes me as being good but I don't think it was ever worn by an artilleryman or has a D Day connection. The battleship grey band and first name painted on the back, reminds me of an RCN used Mk II. But, I would like to handle it before passing a final decision.
