    Blackmagician, that one is really hard! Anyway, it looks like it bears faint remnants of a stencil, in the style used by Italian Army. Look carefully at the rear inner rim: even if repainted, the production lot stamp usually is visible.
    Hi, Ziomanno!

    He tell me it have Nš 89 in rear inner rim but apparently no letters.

    Thanks

    I guess that "89" could easily be "B9", under some layers of paint.
    Try to get a pic of the area.

    Hard to answer mate: in my opinion, a repainted, plain shell for almost 80 euros is too much. I would rather save that money waiting for something better.

    I found the better ones, here in Brazil, It's a shame that I can't pay for it (217,00 euros). The italian M33 ones from Ebay, are they licit?!

    My only problem is with shipment. It very slow in Brazil and we never know, depends of international firm who will ship this and brazilian post offices...

    The helmet posted to beginning post, is repainted after war, chinstrap after war. The inside could have been also done next to the conclusion of the war, the rivets it needs to see better them, from these photos it is not understood. Do you have best photo of the rivets?
