    The shell looks ok, looks like it still has the cork finish, and the chin strap looks right With the OD webbing in the liner, that would be Korean war era, ww 2 would have khaki webbing.

    I like the helmet but I would like better close ups of the helmet and liner. Is that a cork finish on the liner? I have never seen that. I am think Korean War era.

    I am not liking the paint on either the liner or steel pot.
    The liner looks 1950s era to me.
    The pot looks like a possible re-paint but I can not say for sure with those photos.

    When I see a net on a helmet it raises a red flag.
    A lot of times sellers will try to hide things by using a net.
    Not saying that happens all the time or even in this case.
    Just one thing to consider when looking at a prospective helmet you want to buy.

    The net is almost certainly not WWII - Its elastic and style appears to look much more a modern Austrian or European NATO example.
