    I would just buy another one and wait and see if you want to keep the first one.

    I would if I could, but my dad is like a barrier. He doesn't really like me buying german stuff anyways, also the price to him isn't worth it. If I were to sell mine, I would basically pay $200 for a $600 helmet.

    Lol, buying in secret, I'm not that daring. I think I like this one too much to give. I think it was once apple green.

    The M42 that you have is a decent honest example of a war worn German helmet. I agree that the liner looks to be original to the helmet. To Upgrade this lid, you would be looking at some fairly heavy money, as the next in the line is one with a full decal and intact paint, and that's going to be a considerable cost. Sure, a nice Luftwaffe or single decal Heer would be nice, but to consider dropping $700-1000 or more on an example would be quite a problem, given your present situation.

    Thanks wargriff, the liner is original, don't worry. Surprisingly I got this from ebay! Also, do you think it's a reissue? I mean, I can see an apple green paint behind the liner band.

    Oh, I've worked on him. That's how I acquired this helmet. Lol I bugged him so much that he finally gave in.

    I'd be interested what William has to say on the finish too for me it isn't a reissue, paint changes to a different shade over the decades.

    Cheers
