    Could well be a WW2 lid, not a combat helmet by any stretch. Could be a WW2 era fire fightes helmet. Liner is a post war one. Does it have any markings on the rim, and is it a light weight type, aluminium. My helmet of this type from WW2 has a makers mark with a precise date, for example 3/4/1934.

    The helmet style, with the salt shaker type holes is correct for WW2, but I thing it has a post war liner. It looks like a WW2 Fire helmet that has been recycled and re lined for ppost war use.

    I'd buy it just for the fact itis a reuse of a WW2 lid, an has that novlety value of showing how these helmets were used post war

    If it is marked, $75 may be an ok price!

    75$ that's about 7% of a nice original untouched wartime helmet.
