    Some close-ups of the liner would help, and maybe one of the top of the crown.

    Here you go Harry The Mole. This one has been repainted I think.

    Original the price will vary, upwards of $500 for sure. This one has been repainted post war, as these had a long service life.

    Cheers, Ade.

    They were still using these when I was in Northern Ireland in the 70's. A good honest para helmet. But as Ade say's post-war paint job. Nothing wrong in that though!
