True... if it fits you must...

That still doesn't confirm this liner is original to this shell, but there is a clue.

I also like the fact that that marking in the liner (if the liner did indeed come with the helmet) is "K.B.A.G.", the wartime Bekleidungsamt of the Garde Korps. A happy coincidence?

he only need to find a set of original pins to make it a nice worn original garde helmet IMO albeit reassembled, but original.

I have been reading this interesting post since it first came up, but with my poor vision and the photos leaving something to be desired, I couldn't decide whether to jump in on the "favorable" side or not. I liked the shield, it certainly meets all the norms for size, placement, shape, etc., as found in the borderless version.

The "KBAG" stamp has done it for me, coincidence or not. Thanks for spotting that, Chip, I was thrilled to finally see it. I think it is as good as you could expect in a relic Guard helmet, separated liner, missing pins, and all.
