    Default Camo relic or fire damage

    HEllo, bought this helmet a year ago and the camo started flaking off. I posted pics at WAF and one opinion is that it is not camo colors but fire damage. Since WRF is more of a relic lover site, I thought I could get more opinions on it here.

    It was sold and I bought it as a 5 color camo relic lake find. Any of you have knowledge of or photos of fire damage helmets and what it does to the paint?

    I will add closeup paint photos tomorrow in the sunlight.

    Fire damage points are:
    Black areas with red paint and orange etc are signs of fire damage. No pattern to the camo colors.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Also will mention there is no signs of original paint. No signs of any overpaint with original paint under. There is only 1 paint layer. Which depending on where on the helmet has changed color due to fire and or heat IMO.

    I see red, orange, yellow, brown, tan, greenish grey. Theres my 5 color camo lol. Camo by fire!

    One thing I don't understand is there are bare metal rusted areas and bare metal totally black areas with no rust. Does charred metal do something to the surface to prevent rust? Anyone with fire damaged relics to compare?
