Bersaglieri

Hi everyone! I'm here to show you this helmet. I searched it for a lot of time, in fact in Italy it's very difficult to find a M1-c helmet without spending lot of money. 

COVER 

The Mitchell cover it's a rare cotton twill made one from a contract of the 1967.

LINER

The liner is very curious, it is marked with a "6" and it should be from a contract stipulated in the December 1965. The headband should be of the same year of the liner, while the neckband it's a late production.

SHELL

the shell is marked with the number "1236" or "1-2368" and has two layers of paint. The rim is made with non-magnetic manganese and the chinstrap is a bit strange: it looks like a corean war M1c chinstrap which has been modified. I'm waiting for youre opinions and, if you need it, ask for more images!
