    A nice 1970s-1990s version!
    Lovely. They are actually getting harder to get in that condition - some idiots continue to vandalise them, and turn them into bad WWII lids for re-enactment and what not...

    Mint DKI liner, nice worn helmet net. But tell me, is the shell stamped with anything (apart from the CF stamp)?
    Or is the shell a repainted one?

    Thank you for your comments gentleman ,the shell is well used and without removing the netting which i dare not do hard to show in detail but can describe that the exterior is a very dark green in colouration allthough my pictures seem to show a grey colour it shows lots of issued wear marks ,aside from the Civilforsvaret stamp it also has a red stamping with LS so a german manufactured shell "Linneman & Schnetzer" the webbing is green in colour so do i assume army issue ?,some of my earlier withheld questions are starting to surface

    James,

    It is certainly a helmet, that has seen some use.
    The dark-green colour was used by the army.
    However, I am puzzled.
    The chinstrap on the liner is clearly CF (grey) but liner suspension and shell chinstrap is army issue. But perhaps it is simply a question of the CF changing the chinstrap when the helmet was transferred from army - to CF stock.
    The lighting in your photos is muddying the colours a bit, is the DKI liner dark green - or a dark greenish-grey colour?

    I must say the net caught my attention right away as well Jake and I would as well be intrested in knowing if it is indeed a US WW II example or an early post war manufactured piece ...
