It was probably refinished at the end of WWII or during the Korean war. The liner is in fantastic condition! The steel pot has the correct paratrooper chinstraps that are machine sewn, I believe they were a field addition by the stitching.The steel pot has general wear from field use. No stress cracks that I can see. A couple of small dings on the top. The cork texture has worn off, it has a nice dark green patina. It is getting quite difficult to find these Original Paratrooper Helmets.
This one would make a good addition to any collection or great for reenactors! See my other listings for more U. YOU are taking the risk!
