    I must disagree. It is quite possible that a late war liner found its way into a transitional during the war. I would have purchased this helmet Saturday; however, I ended up with several caps instead.

    Those are good "textbook" rules to live by...they will keep you out of obvious trouble.

    However, the initial post is not correct...just because this helmet has a liner band with rounded bales doesn't mean the liner is not a war-time addition.

    The rounded bales, the pigskin liner, the different colored pins...all are not an issue for me alone. From the photos, I don't believe you can say with confidence the helmet has been "messed with". Just because it doesn't have early components, doesn't mean it has been messed with.

    this Austrian type shows the typical features an original reissued at this depot/factory should have , one being the later dark green rivets on an early green shell .
