Hello!

 

Was wondering if I could get some opinions on this helmet liner. Looks like it was manufactured in 1952. Thoughts as well on the skull paintings on the outside? Any help is much appreciated! Thank you in advance.

 

Best,

 

Jake

I think a 50's Capac refurb over an older Westinghouse. The condition and some what modern looking design of the skulls puts me off, but I am only looking at pictures. Can you see age to the skull paint? It could just be a really well rendered examples.  I think the Coast Guard guys used the skulls somewhat regularly.

The leather liner chinstrap is WWII production (brass buckle and United Carr hardware) and probably worth more than the liner itself.

Thanks for the opinions so far, gentlemen. I wish I would have taken better, up close pictures of the paint. It did look fairly newer paint to me with small drops forming where the paint started to drip. I'll try to go back and get better pictures. Thank you again!

Was able to go back and get a few more pictures of the paint. Hopefully these are helpful. It looks glossy and new. Would appreciate any more thoughts and opinions. Thanks again.
