    possible government contract helmet...construction helmet, not military by any means....
  5. vanskyock24 vanskyock24, 3 years ago
    hmmm has me curious now on exactly what it is
  6. tlmbaran tlmbaran, 3 years ago
    see my collection, I have WWI and WWII helmets on display. The crown of your helmet is way too tall, the liner (or whats left of it) is not military, and the inside of the helmet is white....I am sure the outside was white at one time as well. For sure some type of contractor/construction helmet from the 1940's
  7. vanskyock24 vanskyock24, 3 years ago
    yes the inside is white and the outside does look like it was white and painted black at one time. must of been a government contractor
