A little M42 ND that I recently acquired. Appears to be an unissued helmet . Liner is dated 1943 and my best guess is it is a CKL.

Nice pick up! Looks all good from what I can see. I can't comment on the chin strap. But all else looks good.
Probably unissued or very lightly worn. I'm happy to be proven wrong but I was told years ago that most unissued helmets did not have chin straps and often the liner strings were not tied. Maybe just a tall tale....
I can't place it (my poor memory) but I think I've seen this one before...

yes it is a CKL
This was the first of three I picked up in the last week. By far the nicest M42 I have come across.
Sorry to bring up an old thread, but this is a beautiful M42. I noticed on this one the inside appears to be textured as well whereas on others the inside appears to be smoother. Can anyone comment?
