    Default south africa helmet

    would very much like some thoughts on this please i will give mine first and lets hope there right as this is the first one i have had .

    1/ i think its all origianl paint and minty as you will see only a few nicks

    2/ origianl liner but no date or stamps late ?

    3/ there is paint on the liner same as helmet i take it they put liner in sooner then later

    4/ the strapes luges do not seem to be bent over to hold straps so i take it its a unisued lid that never had the strap put on ,

    my question is what about the stud holding the liner in place i have only seen bolts .all so what about no date or stamp on liner

    thoughts are last run end of the line helmet

    paint shows a smouth but sand shine to it and no trace of other paint or ever repainted
