    Hi Bjorn
    A nice MK 1 reissue. I've owe some examples from 1 war, I think they was USA helmets with overpainted bluish gray color, under the paint there was a front painted regimental insignia. All helmets was with original MK 1 liners, but soviet depot stamps of 1924 year was added over.
    Your helmet is nice example, but I think the liner is especially made for that helmet, or?
    Thanks for showing that nice helmet!
