What are your views on this helmet? Do you feel it is a period WWII example. The shell is stamped BB 38 and the liner has a hallmark. There are no marks at all on the chinstrap bales. There is also a slight very small crack (it looks like it occurred during production) near the front of the helmet.
It appears that there is an Alpini Infantry badge stencil on the very front (I can just make it out). Let me know what you think.
