Extremely rare M38 paratrooper helmet. Not only for its period time camo paint but also for the size. The shell is ET71 maker and size marked and comes with a size 59 marked liner. A quite large size which is hard to come by.
M38 shell with a ET71 maker and size stamp as well as a "71" lot number stamped to the reverse. Outside shell covered a thick sand camo paint. The thick paint was brushed to the shell.
