There is no white paint on the edgeroll. I cleaned the helmet with WD-40 multipurpoise oli so this is the reason why it is so shiny. Port side neck strap has "M 4096" and starboard strap has name "MITCHELL". Earphone cushions were coming out but I used leather of WW2 era Type C British flying helmet to fix those earphones. While I bought this helmet from the States in 2008 there were remains of MS22001 mask which was 1952 dated.
Hard to upgrade better Korean War era P-1A helmet! Starboard side earphone string is new. This is the price for this helmet because I know I can't never find similar helmet in the future anymore.. Some facts of the user.
