    The paint 'could' be good but the liner has certainly been out ( and at least one of the liner rivets is new - see the shiny finish on the underside photo )

    The chinstrap looks post war so maybe too is the liner?? The net is BW I think. So basically a put-together in my opinion.

    I agree with Dan. Sorry to say I think is a put together helmet. Marty

    Shell looks good, but like Danmark says, the rest looks put together. I dont like the liner rivets either.

    In this state it would need to be less than $150 - the sum of its parts are not worth more than that. Look for a better one friend.

    So only the shell and the painting on it are ok the rest is a no go i am correct so worth around a 100 dollar/euro~?

    Have to agree with the others... Shell is good but the rest could be a replacement. When you look closely to the split pins you can see that they are bend in a strange manner (and not tight to the liner - one of the "legs" of the front split pin is sticking out).
    There's a website in the US where you can buy original shells only (no liner etc) for $100 for (M42)... just to give you an idea.

    Hi , certainly looks like the liner has been out at least once , and as already stated the net is post war. Leon.
