That’s what happens when you don’t follow the laundry instructions and wash them in hot water and then throw them in the dryer ?

I'm not sure about this one, I think we're going to need some closeups on the paint.

Yeah, I agree.  I'm not getting a good feeling from what I see of the side panels.  The wear looks a bit contrived to me.  Of course, I'll defer to the forum experts on this one ?

I don't think that will help, Nick.  His finger prints and skin oil has probably ruined the patina?

Usually the green liner chin straps are from Euro clone helmets. Might need a look at the liner at least. I don't think it's US though at least if there are euroclone parts attached to it.

That paint just looks way to fresh. A fake in my opinion. I hope that You didn't pay to much...

The liner has been in there a long time, I can't get it out. I think it's original to the helmet, but the scratches on the cross looks artificially done, I'm not to fond of the elastic headband. jmho4289e931968fa6e8606c7e1b44482c6f.jpg1c48f0a560fc324f7b15421f48762421.jpg

Missing chin strap loops... looks like they might not have been there in the first place. . again not a fan of this one. I don't think the helmet is WW2 era, not to mention US manufactured.

Just my two cents,

That helmet and liner are post-war unfortunately, and I mean post backyard-war :)
