    The decal on the first one seems hand painted and im also not too sure about the chinstrap.
    And camo on the other one has been covered with some product.
    I think the colonial pith seems to be the one in best original condition.

    The "decal" should be painted as this denotes a Garde helmet, although the shield is a little larger than I've seen on most of these. Is there a number painted on the rear of the helmet? This is the first M'18 helmet I've seen with the shield. I do think the chin strap has been replaced. It also appears that both steel helmet have been give a clear coat to protect them.
    The armor does appear to be the upper plate of German body armor.
