    Can someone give me some extra info about this helmet?

    I got this from my grandfather who found it on the streets of my hometown during ww2 (a small town North of Antwerp, Belgium)! It’s from 1942, and I guess from the Canadian Army (Brodie Helmet)?

    Can anyone give me some more information please (price, exact model, the reason behind the black stripe in the middle,...)?

    Thank you in advance 🙌🏻Helmet identification  9455cf10

    Its a Canadian MKII helmet from WWII. Its in rough shape, the black stripe isn't issue painted, it would be from something else sitting on top of it during storage.

    If you look closely at the under side of the rim, you may find a maker and date on the shell.
