    It looks OK to me.
    It seems to have a lot of stress fractures on the back.

    The chinstraps appear to be euro clone ones. You need to ask for pics of the buckle on the chin strap to be sure. The helmet cover is good with a 1965 contract stamp. The helmet has a lot of stress cracks ask for a picture of the heat stamp and of weld spots on the rear of thehelmet seam. The liner from the suspension type and configuration was made between 1955 to 1964. It is in a poor state with sections of the duck cloth peeled off and the nape suspension has come away. The tie cord on the suspension is not original to the liner.
