    Default Fixed Bale Lieutenant Helmet

    I got this one over the weekend. I believe it to be a KW Lt lid. I had this liner which I added to make the perfect marriage. Only issue is one bale broke off.
    Any thoughts.

    The liner is KW with the side unit decals, but the Shell may have a chance of being WWII. Wait until the experts chime in but thats my 2 cents.

    Ya, I knew the liner was KW. Here is a pic of the inside.
    I am pretty sure it is a KW repaint.

    Of coarse Ryan you are indeed correct shell being front seamed fixed bale with heavy repaint maybe even more than once but when this was done is impossible to say,liner obviously of postwar production but hard to tell from pics............Jake.

    The shell IS WWII because it is a Fixed Bale.
    The helmet was probably repainted but the LT stripe is old and was put on there at that time.
    Liner IS KW period.
