This is a M42 helmet, which has an original period desert camouflage, however the helmet has been mess about with. The army decal is not original and the liner has been replaced but is original. A totally original desert camouflage Wehrmacht helmet will sale for over £1400. I have priced this helmet accordingly.
This is in fact a post-war made MKII paratrooper helmet which is identical to the WW2 pattern. The only difference being the date of manufacture 1955. The liner is maker marked "C.C.L." ( Christy & Co LTD ), which was also a wartime maker of British helmet liners. The liner is size marked 7.1/3. The webbing chinstrap was introduced in September 1944 and was first worn in combat on Operation market Garden. The helmet comes with a WW2 era netting.

The MKIII helmet was first developed by the British army in 1941 by the medical research council. The MKIII was first worn in combat by British and Canadian troops on D-Day 6th June 1944.

The MKIII and MKIV helmets are more commonly referred to as the Turtle Shell due to its resemblance to the creature. The liner is maker marked "FFL.LTD" ( Fisher Foil LTD ) and dated 1944. The liner has to be removed to see the maker's mark and date.
