Painted around the decal? Thats a great looking helmet, nice decal. I love the national color shield peeking out from under the paint. as if it never wanted to be painted over.
1) A court mounted EKII

Looks like a very nice helmet you have there.........!

As a Ex servicemen with PTSD, I see this quote in a different context
"Enjoy the war, as the peace will be unbearable"
Is this technically a "re-issue" or a field repaint in observance of the requirement? With sand and coarse brush strokes etc.... this would lead me to believe the soldat dutifully did the mod himself.
I would define a "re-issue" as being factory done.
I am waiting to hear more about its history. It defenately is repainted by hand.
I also thougt it was fieldpaint. but seller also said it was reissue. when i know more hostory i will post it
Any helmets for sale that you know of in the south of Holland.. please let me know
