I'm not as worried about the chinstrap on this one as I am about something else. The chinstrap may be original, or it may not be original. Without better photos of it taken off the helmet, showing close ups of the stitching on the back side and the back side leather of the strap, it's hard to say whether or not the strap is original.

What does concern me is that it looks like someone took an M15 Prussian helmet with steel fittings and nickel plated or chromed the exterior viewable area of the fittings on this helmet. Just my two cents worth opinion on it.

And this would be the first M15 Prussian enlisted helmet I've seen that has a carry/storage case with it.

Best Regards,

Alan
