    Its a ww2 helmet, used by the Norwegians post war, theres no way of telling when the chin strap was installed, either original to the helmet or added later

    Steve , just re-read your post re size 55 being an odd size for a german lid, its one of the standard sizes for this helmet shell, the other being a 54, as you know there were two liner sizes for each helmet shell, or did you mean something else, Dave
    You are correct, Dave. My mistake..................!

    I don't know why I was thinking in terms of
    'even' sizes - I've edited my post !

    recently picked up ?

    Looks like a good original chinstrap...............!

    I used to have one of these Norwegian helmets 30 years ago, which I (stupidly)
    converted into a black SS double decal type. The chinstrap had a 'natural'
    tan colour, which was a Norwegian replacement.

    Hopefully you did not pay a whole lot for it.

    Sometimes militaria pieces can be misrepresented
    and be sold for more than their worth.........
