    I don't see any problems. Odd location for the chinstrap stamp (usually stamped at the end of the strap) but you are correct, it is a later war strap with an RB number rather than a manufacturer name.

    Thanks Glenn!I forgot to post the most important pic of the strap.This is the strange part,it has no stitching.

    It looks to be a good honest combat used helmet not a desk jockey or one pulled off the warehouse self.

    Hi, I can't help you with a chinstrap date, but the helmet is a good battle worn HEER M40 with a later war chinstrap that looks like it's been there forever. Leon.

    Thanks,Leon! I was wondering about the year of manufacturing,because i've never seen a strap with a split pin holding the leather underneath the buckle.
    Is it something you can find often on the late war helmets?

    I have seen them but not frequently , it's not a standard combat set with the split pin and the RF nr.
    First I have seen that way but it looks good. Nice helmet.
