    Any chance of a pic of the liner as there are a lot of Post War M33s being passed off as WW2 helmets.

    Easiest way to tell if at least the liner is post war is have a look at the rear stitching-if stitched in a Z pattern its a post war liner.

    Stitching is not a Z. more of a ----- from what I can see. The leather is very dry and I didn't try to open it much.
