    Well, as you have so rightly spotted there is a 0% chance of this being a WW2 shell and liner!! I also will not bother to list the problems!!!

    $215 to ship a 3-4 pound helmet? That better include 1 hour door to door shipping and a gorgeous courier delivering it!

    My head just exploded after seeing that "American army paratrooper" helmet. And I thought it was the headphones making my head boil.

    That is a strange one Dave, they do look like repo A straps and the fact the liner has no female snaps. It looks like someone has wasted a good liner. All rigger ones i have seen have rivets not split pins.
    I was reading the other night about a guy who found complete M1C at a yard sale for $2 and it was all original but it had a rigger modified seamans liner with the A straps riveted through the A washers. Makes you wonder how many other makes of liners were originally altered, which we dismiss because they arenít inland or Westinghouse.

    your quite right rod,never noticed the female snaps were missing,but if that rayon is original im crying cos thats 70 years of history in the trash can just to make a few more quid.,and yes to how many rigger styles were turned out,guess there's no answer to that one,regards dave.
