FJ helmet - opinions

Article about: Ade, Yes, this was the same thing I just heard from another collector. Shell looks good. At this point the chin strap is still in question. The inside is a brown chamois type of material.

    Hi folks, This FJ helmet is marked ckl 68 450. The paint finish is textured Feldgrau - something that may not show well in the photos. Any opinions? NH

    Looks like it's had a replacement liner and pins...other than that i don't know. How much is being asked for it?

    Cheers, Ned.

    Not looking good but to verify if the shell is correct a clear close up picture of where the inside edge is rolled will reveal if it is original.

    I can't get real close with this camera. What am I looking for on the edge?

    The shell is most likely good. Late war clk shells have this rather pronouced looking lower edge to them.

    Cheers, Ade.
