    Very intriguing Chris. When I first saw it, I immediately thought it was a camo, but then when I magnified it, it appears that the helmet has had three different colors on it. If you look close, it appears the chipped off paint is giving it that camo look. Really cool relic helmet though. I'm interested in seeing some more opinions.

    Well in my non-professional opinion, I think you have a camo helmet. The rust is wide spread and deep in some areas with three colors of paint across that rust. I like it alot! Did you pick this up in France when you where photographing for your book?

    Take care,

    No I pick it up about 20 years ago From a Farmer in Normandy.You can still find good deals in France but you have to talk to the locals ,because the militaria stores are asking for too much money better prices in the states.I have a guy in France I am trying to get a M35 with decal .

    So you are going right to the sources then, that's great. You must be able to speak some French. I hope you close the deal on that M35 and show us pictures of it here soon. I wanted to add that you are a darn good photographer Chris. Keep up the good work!

    Take care,

    The holes in the top are interesting....
    Is this possibly a grave marker helmet ?

    I think they are just rust holes .The grave marker helmet were just put on the crosses not nailed I am not sure of that .Also they put them on the ground in the front of the grave.
