The "natural" colour of Hessian ("SACK MATERIAL") was light brown, those were usually issued with Broad Arrow stamp Maker's Code and DATE, but when those were DYED GREEN for Pacific Jungle Campaign use?? They LOST those details to the DYE.
So these hessian covers are NEVER maker-marked or dated, although they would have been if worn in The Middle east as the "natural colour" Hessian covers were. The HELMET is missing its original chinstrap but otherwise is in VERY GOOD ORIGINAL condition, the anti reflective "sand" paint work entirely ORIGINAL to its WW2 era issue.
My reserve is FAIR given the originality CONDITION and RARITY. PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME TO LIST ANOTHER of these VERY VERY SCARCE Steel Helmets any time soon.
Any questions please MESSAGE ME. Because I must pay GST on all "local sales" :.
