  1. Answering my own question but yes it does appear to be a cavity, for a photo perhaps??
  2. Is that a cavity in the back of the eagle?
  3. Yep, the bottom one looks identical to mine. It definitely has a slight tilt to the glider wings. Great looking badges!
  4. These are only the dates for the Birmingham Assay office, there's also London, Sheffield, Chester and Edinburgh. Birmingham Assay marks do appear to be the most prolific on WWII American insignia though.
  5. Happy days, I do love a bargain! Thank you for your help, it's very much appreciated.
  6. That's fantastic news, many thanks! I was the only bidder on UK eBay, cost me £10 (approx $13USD), so pretty pleased with that 🙂
  7. Do these sterling marked jump wings look OK to you guys?
  8. Brilliant, thank you all for taking the time to look over the helmet..I really do appreciate it! At least it's not all bad and the liner is an original. Thanks again!
  9. Ah I see, thank you. So the only part that's original is the liner, which is scarce. Any idea how much the liner is potentially worth?
  10. Thanks all again. Strange putting an original liner into a fake shell, are original shells hard to acquire?
  11. Thanks for the replies so far guys. So the liner is ok but the shell isn't, what about the chin strap etc? What makes the shell fake? Sorry for the questions but I know absolutely nothing about lids, so am just trying to learn.
  12. That's a shame, could you possibly elaborate? The whole thing is fake or just the painted on decals, rank etc?
  13. Hi, This helmet has been sent to a friend of mine who has been tasked to sell it on consignment. First he would like to make sure if it's all correct or not. What do you guys think, is it OK or has it been enhanced? Many thanks in advance. Dave
