    Hi the helmet is on pages 138,139,140,141,of Branislav Radovics book on ww2 germman helmets of the the second ww!There are six pictures of it.It has a standard 31 pattern liner ,and strap,although it says some come with a padded upper shell ,and y straps.Its further interesting to see it painted in red which looks period ,and a second pattern luft decal is oddly above the front peak.It has numbers inside which read 011-64.AS I SAID BEFORE IF SOMEONE DOSNT BEAT ME TO IT I WILL TRY, AND HAVE IT ON THE SITE AT The WEEKEND,oops sorry for shouting !!
