    Hi everyone.
    I would like some opinions on this helmet.
    Looks like the liner is correct. I have seen green chinstraps but not the brownish color.
    Is this some thing the Italian did in the North while fighting with the German.
    Once again I would greatly appreciate your oppinions.

    The camo is not one I like. Looks scrubbed, unconvincing chips and artificial patina. Maybe others have a different view.

    I'm weak on M33's themselves, hopefully others can help. But it too was my understanding that the straps were gray/green.

    Certainly looks like shiny bare steel around the vent hole suggesting recent wear and abrasion.

    Not a convincing period applied camo.

    I would agree with your assessment I went back and found other helmets sold by the same individual.
    I notice the scrapes on top of both helmets. It looks like they went in one direction and scraped it coming back. The second helmet shows a faint chicken wire pattern.

    He getting $200.00 and $300.00+ for these.

    Morning Marvin,
    without going into the evaluation of camouflage paint and scratches, I would stop first, I think it is a helmet refitted in the postwar.
    The type of chinstrap and the rounded air vents are decidedly post-war, the color of the internal painting, can vaguely remember the gray-green of the WW2 period, but corresponds with the shade used in the post-war period for the following military corps:
    Navy, Air Force and Guardia di Finanza (Finance Police).
    Obviously this is just my opinion.

    Regards
    Roberto
