    No issues mate, M42 helmets seem to "work" the liners loose more often than M35/40's. Not unusual at all, the liner pins are untouched as is the rest of the helmet in my opinion. Great buy. Leon.

    Thanks Leon! On close inspection, I can't see anything to lead me to think it's ever been messed with either. I think it's been well cared for too, and probably looks about like it did 70 years ago when whoever it was picked it up. My suspicion is that it is a US vet bring-back. The history I know of it, starts with River Valley Militaria in Wisconsin and ends up in Tennessee where the guy I got it from lives. We'll never know though I guess, and the few dead bugs (yep, little flying insects of some sort) that are dried to the inner liner band probably won't tell me no matter how nice I ask.
