I doubt the crown pad is original. It has been modified to webbing straps by drilling a hole at the back in the center. Part of the liner that would show the date has been cut off.


    It would suit a reenactor I suppose but for me as a collector it has very little value.

    Yeah, thanks for the reply

    Mark 1 HSAT para helmet real or fake

    Hi,

    This helmet is from Australia and the person said he bought it at a car boot sale.
    He said it’s been refurbished.

    Sweatband is missing, chinstrap has been period modified which was normal. Says it’s 1942.

    Is it original or fake?

    If original, how much is it worth?

    Thanks in advance!

    These are the only pictures I have of it..
