    Ive never seen Italian helmets with the palm tree on it. Others might have though.

    I have also never seen an Italian helmet with palm tree insignia.

    I am also concerned that the name is so bright white and doesn't really match the age or discoloration of the rest of the helmet.

    What does the paper tag say?

    Hi, me neather.
    The owner could have been bored at some point.

    Joe raised a point on the name.
    Too white, however could it be from the flash??

    To me parts of the decal are painted over the old chips on the undercoat.
    I too have never seen a decal like this on an Italian helmet, thatís not to say they never painted things like this on them.

    Other than that it looks like a nice wartime m33.
    Just my opinion
