    Default Is this the real deal? US ww2 helmet

    Hey guys,
    I'm new here. Never bought any ww2 helmets (FYI - I do own a ww2 candian flag, with the hand pen writtent words on the flag "Victory over europe Ve- DAY May 11/45 Halifax")

    I'm not an expert so I'm kinda hesitant to buy considering all the fakes out there.

    Anyway, I can get this bucket for $50 bucks through a co-worker. They say it is WW2.

    What do you guys think?? Real/fake, date? Anything I should look at?

    Any help is appreciated!

    thats the liner for this helmet.....us helmets are two piece, shell and liner. the liner fits inside the steel shell.

    the liner looks to be a 1950's version with OD green webbing & the shell looks to be a front seamed version which makes it of WW2 issue so although not completely of WW2 issue its still a good buy at $50.

    NickD is correct. The liner is not W.W.2. It does not have HBT kahki colour suspension. The sweatband is the correct colour HBT. Rich A. in Pa.
