I would pass on this one, it looks fake to me, including the liner and chinstrap arrangement.
There is no age at all to the wire cover, artificial aging to the helmet, which to me (the helmet) is suspect too.
I agree with Bob, and would like to add that IMO the twist of the wire is not period correct.
Good advice above. Nothing on this one dates to WWII.
I can only echo my forum friend's comments.
