    Nope. But hey 2.50 for a military helmet still very good deal.

    Yes very common Swedish helmet. Sometimes fakers attempt to convert these into Japanese. Liner & chinstrap dead give away

    Welcome to the Forum. Nice grab - for $2.50 you can't
    complain. Any one of us here would have snapped
    it up at that price..........!
