    Default original MP Helmet?

    Hello everyone, i was looking at this helmet and sorta fell in love with it. i think that the liner is from WW2 because is has the hole to put the rank bar in the front. i could be wrong though. i was wondering if the painting on the helmet and the liner is original. The MP looks a little fresh to be but the painting on the shell looks good to me. i like the "Miss Mr. Charlie" wasnt that the nick name given to the enemy? anyways any help would be very appreciated.

    I believe it says: 'Miss Me Charlie' - which corrected should read: 'Missed Me Charlie'.
    ( Note the arrow pointing to a 'hole' ) This would indeed be Vietnam era,
    but could have been written anytime after.

    This incomplete helmet is a reworked WWII lid IMO, with later replacement
    chinstraps, though the sellers' description is accurate enough.
    The white stripe on the top of the lid is strange !

    The rough 'MP' markings on the liner are hand painted, which leads
    me to think it is a modern made-up or put-together job. The liner
    webbing, or what's left, has also been sprayed dark green.

    I would not want this one unless it was very cheap
    since it has been messed with.


    There are better ones out there...............!
