    Default m42 helmet real or fake?

    Hello I bought a m42 helmet. Im not a expert on helmets so i want the opinion of an expert.
    That the helmet is repainted that is shore but im not sure about the stamps and the liner. The shell is stamped CKL64 with lot 4071
    The alu liner is stamped Na64 56. On the chinstrap i cant find anything. The shell weight is without liner 1060gr.
    What is real and what is fake.
    Sorry if my english is not that good im from Holland. Thanks for the help !
    If you need more pictures please tell me

    Could we see some photos of the actual shell, please? The liner looks good, and the markings tell me that this is indeed an original shell...
    cheers, Glenn

    An original shell and liner...other than being repainted everything looks good! Good luck with your restoration project!
    cheers, Glenn

    So there are original chinstraps that are unmarked? cause on this one I cant find a stamp.

    The chinstrap doesn't look right to me. It is not original to the liner either.

    Real shell and steel liner band. Not a fan of the leather , chinstrap is not good imo and the helmet has no original paint.
    Collector value is zero. Sell it and get yourself a nice original one. Unmarked straps exists often it's a marked one with a bad stamp.

    I dont have a good feeling about any of this one, aside from the original shell. Save your money, not worth spending it on this helmet.
