    it all depends if you are buying it as a WW11 or post-war helmet.

    - forestry and hunting items,

    The liner (type of leather), chinstrap bales (trapezoidal instead of rectangular) and chinstrap (cloth instead of gray/green leather) are all post-war. I can't judge the vents from the angle of the photos... but I assume the entire helmet is post-war.

    i agree with the other guys , cavas chinstrap is a post war feature i believe this to be a post war version of the m33 period ww2 m33's usually have a letter P and number stamped in the rear lip of the shell ,you could always enquire this to find out if it is refurbed ww2 shell

Just a guess is all .

    That is a nice helmet, I wouldn't mind my wife having a bigger wardrobe, if she kept them in the bottom of it.
