Does this have any chance to be of original condition?
Liner, strap, stripped whitewash?

Could be a ex Norwegian army helmet looking at the color of the liner
Hi, sorry I don't like this, the split pins look like a recent addition and the chinstrap looks like a repro. The liner could be Norwegian as noted, or post war dyed, either way it shows not much wear and I don't like the aquamarine? paint inside the shell.
The liner is original but was dyed red by the Norwegians when it was re-issued....I can't comment on the paint...The chinstrap with the "Larsen" marking is suspect as well, as that particular maker is most often seen on reproduction chinstraps...

Thanks for the answers! Can anyone tell me what info does the lot number 3282 (SE62) give?
Hi, a messed with helmet, not worth pursuing. Leon.
