    Forum members are going to ask for a better photo of the decal and details about the helmet. It appears to be an original M42 shell. Loose pins indicate the liner was removed/replaced. You should be able to locate a manufacture code and production number in the skirt area. That information will be needed. NH

    Thanks but you can click on the decal photo to enlarge it.
    I emailed the seller about the code and production numbers.

    Not necessarily. Pins did come loose from wear, but not always. And it may have depended on how well the pins were installed. Sloppy installation would probably lead to looser pins faster. This looks like an HKP shell.

    I like it. Good lid to me the liner has seen better days. Marty

    Hi, looks like a decent HEER M42 to me, loose liner pins are fine as long as they show no signs of re-bending and I have noticed that the M42 seems to be more susceptible to this happening due to general usage than the other models. Leon.

    I like the look of it, it appears to be all original to me.
    A fairly nice example of the ET style Heer decal with a bit of age toning.
    The liner seems to be original to the helmet, as mentioned already, the pins can and
    do work loose during wear and heavy work, but you would need to check for signs of re-bending inside.
    I agree with MD Helmets as to the maker possibly being hkp, as the air vents and crisp shape give that
    impression.
