    The helmet have the front seam and liner have the green coated mid-war A-washers. What do you guys think, is it a good example of a ww para helmet or is something not right? And how about the decals, do they look alright? Sorry I haven’t got better pictures so far.

    Call me paranoid but the liner does look kinda new. Of course this in my judgment but it kinda does. I can't say anything toward the decals but ya never know now a days. One of the others will be along in a few and give you a good idea to it's authenticity/ fakeness etc. Best of luck.

    the liner is a post war 1950's version the shell chin strap is a repro & the paint job doesn't look good to me either from those pic's it looks newly applied !

    I'd say the same on this steer well clear, as stated this is a 1950's liner, which has been messed about with. As if this was original liner the webbing would be O.D#3 and not O.D#7 and O.D#3 so the chin cup and "A" frame webbing harness are a repro kit which have been add to an original post war internal webbing frame work, so a repro paratrooper liner done on the cheap.
