    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Nice example, is the chin strap stiched to the helmet, or the liner?

    Thanks Steve.

    Really hard to tell as it is so tight. But it is stitch to the helmet, I'm just not sure if the stitching goes through to the liner. I pulled down the leather sweat band but don't think there is stitching underneath but cant be certain without risking damage.

    Thanks, I had one which I knew the liner was not original to the helmet, the strap was stitched direct to the helmet, and I was never sure if it was original to the helmet. I sold it some time ago, it's just one of those unanswered questions.

    Took two shots of the inside of the liner. I will tell you that it is very old. Most of the cork is still there with lots of sweat stains. So if replaced it was a really long time ago and probably period.

    From these pics there is no visible stitching directly on the liner but there are some loose threads. There are also a marking made in ink. Looks like the number 11 with a very small 2 next to it. But the "2" is so small it could be anything. Looking at it under a loop doesnt help.

    should it be attached to the liner or the helmet. Or both?

    Michael, thanks for the pics, I hope you don't think I was questioning your helmet, yours looks like it is all original. I was only looking to answer a question about how contrived the one I had was.

    I don't know if how the strap should be fixed, but would think with the lack of rivets it would be stitched to shell, at least.

    Steve,

    Absolutely no problem. Wasn't thinking you were questioning it. And even it you were, wouldn't bother me in the least!
