Morning Gents I came upon this Mk II Para helmet and would like to add it to my collection I have decided it needs a little more investigation though before I decide were to draw the line in the sand as to what I am willing to pay for it.
My own conclusions are the liner looks good but would appear to have a little damage do to being stored in a damp location it is in a nice large size a rarely seen 7 7/8,
From the images the chinstrap would appear correct as does the dome pad and sorbo rubber my only real concerns is the dark green paint which is evident on a couple of places on the tail ends of the chinstrap, exterior of the shell and on the interior of the helmet around the area of the rim .
I am a little concerned this helmet has had a layer of post war paint stripped from her as the shell looks fairly shiny but perhaps a little camera flash there as well is not helping matters any thoughts and or opinions are welcome please pardon the images I know they are not the best but are all I have at the moment.
