    And what do you think about his sapper badge? In my opinion cloth is new, but metal looks good. The seller send me some more photos.

    Here's a 2nd pattern paratrooper beret that I used to have in my collection. The colors are off because of my flash but it's similar to the color of Gary's, previously posted. I don't know exactly what color these were when first issued -- was it similar to the color of the collar patches? But over time I think the berets tended to turn a bit toward the brown/gray side due to age and fading and perhaps the degradation of the material that they were lined with.

    Agreed.
    The colour in all the 2nd patterns I've seen is about the same as this.
    The original "steel grey" dye seems to have bleached away with time.

    I have a helmet in my collection with a very similar eagle to the one on this helmet. When I get my software sorted out for my new OS, I will shoot some pics and post them. My example is Canadian made and dated 1940. So I give it a thumbs up.

    Would very much like to see the Helmet, ..
    .. Possibly posting it over in the "Polish helmet eagle" thread would be more appropriate as it is from a collection, rather than for sale ..

    Cheers

    Mr Gary
    I agree with you on all points..
    and I know very little about helmets

    this one seems good
    except
    the eagle on ones I know are good

    seems lije the base itself has more paint
    and the feathers seem more complex

    but I am just beginning to learn
    so i look to others for help in learning
    Regarding your observation that the base has more paint... are you referring to the paint on the eagle or the base coat of the helmet? So far as the heaviness of the paint found on Exile helmet eagles is concerned --- this varies widely from example to example. Some have very thickly painted eagles while others have the paint very thinly applied. This is true for both stenciled and non-stenciled eagles.
