    It appear to be a correct WWII GI helmet. Chin strap is post war, it also appears that this helmet may have been a fixed bale and then converted over to swivels (loops to which the chin strap attaches). I noticed that one of the bales appears to set farther to the rear than the other. This was usually done because part of the old fixed bale weld was still on the helmet, so the moved the swivel behind it. I have one that had the swivels changed and is a vet bring back. He was in the 106 ID and reached his unit as a replacement on May 5, 1945.
    The front seam and maker marks are a good sign of it being a wartime helmet.
