When you first posted this over at the WRF I thought it was good but, with only the one picture from the seller it was hard to tell. It's not so hard to tell now. From what I see it looks like a very good pick-up for your collection. I like it! :thumbsup:

Doubtful. The unit markings with the added-dots make it a Normandy-used incorrectly-ticked 3/506 PIR helmet, probably a replacement for a broken M2.

Cheers,
Glen.
