    Its a put-together with new pins I would say. The finish looks moisture pitted from the air ( I don't think it is a dug helmet ) and the liner looks OK. The chinstrap short end looks OK ( but aluminium M35 style ) but the long end is repro and sadly, someone has put a dodgy acceptance stamp on it.

    Depends on how much they are after - under $300 would be all I would pay.
    Its got an original finish and an original liner ....... just not THE original.

    Dan has nailed it with his summary, definitely a put together lid.
    I can just make out the ckl stamping in the shell.

    Hi, it does appear to be a put together helmet, but at least all the parts (chinstrap long end not included) are original and it has not been re-painted or had fake decals slapped on it. Leon.
