    A chinstrap wouldn't hurt but you know this is a Norwegian liner don't you?

    Nice Quist made helmet in a large size. The liner denotes, as Glenn said, post war Norwegian usage. The shell was made between 1940 - 1943 as the serial number position was moved to the back of the helmet skirt in 1943.

    liner is to new for the helmet. inside the dome of the helmet has a bit of rust. but the liner tongues are not damaged in any way. the Q 66 lot number. is that a the rear of the helmet?

    Q66 denotes Quist, size 66cm, not the lot number. The lot number is the one underneath and both would be on the side of the skirt. After 1943 the Q** stayed there and the lot number was moved to the back. Still a nice helmet even with the replaced liner which shows some wear and tear too. Not a true WWII helmet setup but still something I'd be happy with.

    Thanks Guys. I had a look at the liner rivets and was expecting to find brass but they are in fact aluminium.What would this indicate? I thought Norwegians used brass pins on their helmet liners

    If you wanted to, you could locate the original non-dyed leather for that helmet. I believe there is one for sell for a very good price that may fit your helmet, which I will post a link for.
