I was able to pick up this helmet in trade for a Bundeswehr mess kit. To me, it appears to be a proper WWII vintage Italian M.33 due to the smaller vents, gray/green leather chin strap, and square chinstrap bales. It's stamping reads: P10, which matches the wartime stampings I've seen on this website: ITALIANO 1933
Ontop of that all, it's a larger size and fits my HUGE head!
1. Is this a legit camouflage helmet? The top layer of paint certainly looks old, and it is crazing everywhere.
2. Is there a decal on the front of this helmet? I know better pics are required! But to me, it looks like someone went digging for a decal before I owned this helmet. I do THINK I see feathers from a WW2 Fascist Italian Army decal...
So, fellows... What do you think!?
