    All looks OK to me, the paint on the outer shell looks a little glossy but that might be flash, there must be quite a few of these still in storage!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Hi Paul and Ade
    Thanks for your comments.
    As I know, The Ssh40 helmets by LMZ which have "1948r" dated were the last helmets made from parts of word war II. However this one seems haven't been repainted or refurbished since its condition is "too" mint. Does that mean it was 1948 new made but not rebuild from wwii shell? Please advise thanks.

    Every chance it could be a wartime shell, they removed the old liners and stripped off the old paint then resprayed and restamped them!...
