Hi Fellow collectors.
Here's an M33/47 from my collection, This particular model is in poor condition, the liner is dry and cracked in places,but does have the original leather tie. The leather appears to be black in colour ,but is actually brown and very aged.
Hopefully the pictures supplied will explain all the details.
The aspect that is puzzling me about this helmet, is the hint of a "sand" coloured paint peeking through the Green paint on the outer shell, does anyone here know why this may be the case?
Is this helmet shell an original WW2 M33 ,reissued with post war parts,I assume not,but cannot think of a reason why is would have been painted Sand at one stage ??
Thanks for looking ,Opex.
