The exterior, cork infused, olive drab paint is approximately 85% intact. The Westinghouse liner has the earlier khaki web straps, and the helmet web chin strap carries the early war clasp with raised bar. The chin strap clasp shows green verdigris. The liner is painted with the rank insignia of a First Lieutenant with a leadership strip painted from the front of the helmet to the back. The liner is lacking its chin strap.
