    Default M40 ET68 winter camo relic

    Anyone care to weigh in on this relic winter camo? It's had a replacement liner fitted, repro chinstrap etc. (everything openly stated by seller and of course quite obvious) but the shell and camo+pins and linerband is supposed to be as it was when found. If the camo checks out OK I can't see any other option than this being something like a bunker found helmet with the paint preserved by mud or something similar... ? Any thoughts?

    Not for me, the 'patina' is heavy but it looks forced, and not gradually attained. Overall it just has a false look to it that is hard to put into words....

    Expect to pay about $4000 for a good winter camo.

    First impression is i don't like it, but better pics of the inside and real good clear close ups of the outer shell would be nice. I don't like the edge of the helmet. The wear is too uniform.

    Wouldn't be for me for the reasons already stated , the wear isn't in the places you would expect and where it is worn it appears contrived !!

    Thank you guys! As stated by KradSpam, it does have a heavy looking patina but even I felt there was something off/contrived about its whole outer appearance... so, I'm definitely staying away from this one. I'll just have to keep on looking until a good one pops up I guess

    Basically you would expect the same corrosion on the skirt edge as found on the inside of the skirt. Not too many pics of the inside of this helmet.

    Lars: here's a few more showing the inside, just for completeness sake. Repro liner and chinstrap,... its also had a repair to the skirt edge on one side

    Thank you Slados. What's with the right side of the skirt? Looks "funky". So the liner was changed and the liner rivets not? hey have the same white wash as the rest of the lid. This is also a little "funky" IMHO.

    Mvh, Lars

    Also it is even more "funky" that the vent hole is corroded but no corrosion right next to it where the paint flaked off.
