    the liner system looks to me like a post war german helmet liner. and the decal looks like a fake big footed quist decal

    I would avoid this one, the decal appears to be a sticker and on the wrong side. Perhaps an original shell (or not). Liner lacks stitching, I don't see a liner band, paint may even be suspect - it has definitely been messed with.

    Pass pass pass. Looks like a good M42 shell with added parts. Save your money.

    The shell is the only thing that stands a chance of being a period item, I'm afraid.

    Actually, that's a bloody good point. No liner rivets? What the hell is this? I equate that to 1950/60 BGS with the M40 style shell, never with an M42 shell. Maybe they were filled and then the lid repainted?
