    Looks like an original camo to me, but shellacked by the vet, something that happened quite often back in the day. Jim G.

    I have the same thoughts as Jim regarding the shellack.

    Hard to tell if it's shellacked or just heavily waxed? A beautiful condition camo lid, in any case and certainly authentic! Thanks for posting!

    I'm voting for shellack, my M16 has a similar 'look' which I know to be shellack.

    Not sure what they go for over there but I think that is near the high end. With chinstrap maybe a bit more? But a nice looking helmet with a complete and wonderful liner.

    I have one without the varnish but with a chinstrap but with some more wear and a dry liner (one pad broken) and if I remember correctly paid around GBP150 under this level.

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
