    Default 3 colour cammo armour piece

    Well I don’t win all the online auctions I go for…..
    Sometimes you have to stick with your $ limit and if some other bidder wants it you have to watch it go.

    This is such an example. On the back of my Junkers JU-52 relic win I had also bid on this 3 colour cammo lid off some German piece of equipment – I just liked the patina and ‘vibe’ it gave out and thought it too would be a neat addition to the wall. But it was not meant to be ……

    Anyway, here are a few photos of one that ‘got away’ for discussion.

    Has anyone seen this type of cammo pattern before? It is quite fine considering the overall size of the piece ( 35cm x 17cm ) I don’t doubt it’s originality but surprising to see ALL 3 colours on something this size.

    Any ideas from the armour guys?

    Cheers, Dan

    Nice item but I don't think its from a Tank looks to be made from Aluminium so maybe from a horse trailer or something like that

    Yes quite possibly. The main question is the pattern of the cammo~I've not seen any like it.

    I would suggest it is pre war Reichwehr.

    Ooh... now I'm intrigued Ade. What makes you say that?
    Have you come across a pattern similar?

    colors look similar to WW1 Camo helmets (not necessarily the pattern however) They match my M16 perfectly

    It'll do.... LoL! A nice chalky one versus the more common shiny ones we typically see.
