    Cheers Mate, I don't even know if I will replace the pin but if I do, it will need to be original and will need to match the lid..
    Thanks

    No worries mate, I am like you and tend to leave things as they are, but I had a ex polish army post war painted M42 and stripped it and "rebirthed" it with a repro liner and pins. I have again stripped it and just thought it may have been a quick fix till you found an original!!! but I like your idea of leaving well enough alone. I stripped that shell when I first started collecting, so I was more of a projject peice. I now have 5 more helmets, even an M35 that has its vent hole welded up, and a repainted m42 shell, but I am not going to touch these lids as they have their own story to tell even though modified...

    Matching the pin might prove difficult especially asking help from a photo that doesnt always give a true representation of the colour of the helmet, however the pin you show appears to be much darker than the lid so what is the colour you need as you might find that only you can guage the colour in person
