Original WWII front seam swivel bale shell with painted Lt bar insignia. From what I can tell the paint on the helmet is original. Chin straps are late or post WWII replacements. I showed it to another collector and he says this helmet was probably used in the l ate 1950s or early in Vietnam and that's most likely when the LT bar was painted on it.
