    all looks good to me with this WW2 helmet front seamed swivel bail with what looks to be a INTERNATIONAL MOLDED PLASTICS, INC (IMP) made liner i would give this one the thumbs up

    The OD painted A-washers are mid-war...but the chinstraps on the pot look like they are OD, which is late-war. Still a good looking helmet!

    A very nice lid, the liner is in incredible condition for the year, nice mid war/late war combo.Thanks for sharing this one.

    It's interesting to see a nape strap with steel snaps, usually they are brass.

    A nice lid for anyone's collection

    also check under the visor inside your steel shell, see if you can find a S I think it might be a Schlueter shell
