    Default M1 helmet wartime repaint

    I have posted pictures of this one before but after debating with a fellow collector I figured I would repost it. When I bought the helmet it was sold as a early wartime repaint from the collector. He stated that it was painted somewhere in the pacific early in the war to cover the glossy green paint since it was so shiny when wet. He also stated it was either done by the individual or the company he was with. Don’t know much about wartime repaint s just that they do exist and it can be really hard to tell sometimes.

    Helmet looks fine to me, nice wartime painted helmet. There were different shades of OD paint used during the war.
