Nice looking lid, is the chinstrap original to the helmet as it looks a bit better condition wise  in the first picture? What is a JOSTO?

Great warrior! 

What is the colour of the overpaint? Is it pure dark grey or is it toned blue?

Thanks @kap, its almost a blue green color.

Cheers!

Tony,

I feel out of touch, everything is a science these days! In my day it was just right or wrong. I don't envy the young people the future!

Best

Rich

Hi Tony, I was up in the loft a while back and found one similar to to one you have but mine has the markings for the Hitler Youth, I found this helmet in the basement of Detmold Barracks, Germany, many years ago, when i was but a mear lad of 14 , I was being nosey and exploring around, as we were Army Cadets , There was also a very badly rip up German uniform but it was far to gone to save, that was in a corner near the rear of one of the Boilers, I dont why no one had ever pick up the helmet before, it had no liner, but it still had the pins , in front and rear, later I added a proper liner and used the very same pins, I had almost forgot that I had it, thats what age will do to you
