    hiya mate heres the pics you sent me just needed to re-size them

    from these the paint on the shell looks to be a dark OD green if this is right theres a chance its been reissued during the Korean war when this type of chin strap would have come into full use but in saying that this type of chin strap was in use very late in the war but not very common.
