    Default M1 fixed bail with original net

    Hello gents , just bought this one at the fair in Belgium from a guy that finds a lot of stuff out of the woodwork in France.
    I am at heart German helmet collector but own a couple of M1's.

    I hope you like it.

    The net is stuck to the outside of the inner shell , I tried to lift it but did not force it so I wisely put it back as it was.
    The inner helmet seems to have been repainted in a strange color.

    The liner is CAPAC and the chinstrap hardware is copper.

    Happy new year.

    Hello Chris , I can lift it a little that's what I did to photographs the paint but the net is stuck to it further down so I don't want to force it.

    All appears a nice shell. If it was me, I would have to see what was on the liner. A strange paint indeed.
    Best regards,
    Chris

    Thanks,
    Not worth damaging the net for in my opinion. The net is really stuck to the paint so I will either destroy the net or the paint or both. I always wanted one which had the net on for a long long time. I do not think it will yield more information.
    The liners were repainted often because they lost paint easily it will always be hard to say when this was done.
