    Appears to be a "Q" shell.

    Thanks for that.....I'm still learning the intricacies of the helmet manufacturers....the Luft lid is a Q

    Looking at my pics there is a definite similarity in the Luft and SS

    Very nice! I like it! Why is the rivet hole filled?

    It has a liner....a 1943 dated liner that is not original to the helmet......the member I bought it off had a old relic liner from another helmet that he had placed in this shell.....it is in firly good nick, with a lot of the leather still intact

    I have some relic liner pins that are still useable...so I may be able to fit the liner, but be able to return it to its originsl non liner condition without damaging it

    It staying with me forever and ever
