Ebay find - schlueter helmet any thoughts?

Article about: As Nick says - the chinstraps are likely a later type. From their colour, I was beginning to think they were replaced, and if so, the sewer had a skilled hand.........!

    Default Ebay find - schlueter helmet any thoughts?

    Hello,
    I found this helmet on Ebay and picked it up for $18.00.
    Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    Does the paint look original?
    I think the MP was painted on later but I dont know about the white.
    Would you strip the white paint off?
    I was going to take mineral spirits to the MP.

    I will likely get a 50's Korean War era liner.
    I guess I could go WWII liner also.

    OK, I got it today.
    It looks better than I thought it would.
    It is hard to see in pics but the white has that aged yellow tinge to it.
    Marked 551A with the Schuleter S under front brim.
    Swivel Bail with sewn on straps.

    looks good being a SCHLUETER shell its WW2 as they never made them post war as for the MP paint job looks good could be late to post war from the type of chin strap ?
