    Default Ratty M42 and liner - Norskie?

    I have seen this for sale, but am thinking it is a Norwegian re-issue that had the paint stripped to get rid of the decals - sadly stripping most of the paint underneath too. Liner looks red enough for Norwegian. Any comments welcome.Click image for larger version.

    Eek! I'd say that you are right. Someone tried to re-convert a Norwegian helmet back into what they hoped would pass for an original German issue. Unfortunately, such was, apparently, not possible...

    Hi Al, I agree with you that this is a messed with Norwegian re-issue helmet. Personally I would leave it well alone. Leon.

    Brass liner rivets = Norwegian
    Aluminum = German
