Hi, I'm new here and I want to start asking for some help to identify a helmet my father gave me yesterday.
(It has no liner and no number indicating the production lot)
Since I've read a bit about it, I would say it's an early ww2 helmet because:
- Fixed bails
- Front seam
- stress cracks on the shell
- dark green colour
On the other side, I have some doubts of being from ww2 beacuse:
- painted inside
- no straps are stitched to the loops. Post ww2 metal clasps instead.
I believe it's a ww2 m1 helmet but re-used after the war ended.
what is your opinion?
