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.
Ok the shell and the paintings are good but not the linner and the net etc i like the collor of the helmet but i don,t go for it because of the rest . thanks all .
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.
Helmet looks good M-42 with some issues as stated Net is definetly BW or Austrian Post War. timothy
Hi , certainly looks like the liner has been out at least once , and as already stated the net is post war. Leon.
