    the non camo manufacture is NS and the size is 66 !!
    you spoke about an camo for the quist manufacture?

    Ah, I thought it might be NS if not a Quist, they have similar traits. A Quist M42 would be quite rare as I'm sure you know

    I very much doubt it was a wartime repair, chinstraps would have been widely available, either from other helmets from kia or from unit supplies

    I saw that rivet on the chinstrap, too. The liner on the first helmet looks nice will these be going on eBay?

    Nice original M-42's chinstrap on one has been mentioned. I like the bread bag and the KS98 by Alcoso also. timothy

    I once had a ET M35/40 with original riveted straps for a lefty-- but unlike this type of rivet.

    Harvest-- what was traded for all of this if I may ask?

    There was recently a discussion on GHW about riveted chinstraps as seen on some of the rare qvl / bvl M42 shells. They used the same type of rivet as on other field gear, k98 ammo pouches and shovel covers etc. They were not exactly like this but it was worth mentioning.
