    Default British airborne helmet

    Hi finally got my ww2 British para helmet did love it at first but unsure now i know the strap is a repro the guy who sold me it said he knew it was and gave me the web one to change over to if i prefered.The liner looks old was a bit suspect at why the date is gone but gave him the benefit of the doubt.Now that i receive it in the post ive turned up the leather band and it looks new ? but the rest old?? very puzzled guys then again should it look as good as new but the rest old ? i know it has seen no light for a long time but thought it would age also.The leather band that holds the liner in is broke in places so is definately old i think.

    I can't really see a problem with it other than the chin strap(but I'm no super expert though), there's mine for you to compare with, but it's the earlier model

    The chinstraps have suffered and have torn off short, ...
    Also, I do not think the outer paint finish is WW2 ...
    ..The liner and sweatband don't really throw up any problems from what I can see in the photo's.

    Regards
