    Default German helmet, supposedly camo, but not sure.

    Hello again, this is Julekpl. I will attempt to bid on this helmet at an auction in my neighborhood, but something about it troubles me. This helmet is described as "WW2 German camo helmet" But this camo seems a bit different than any I've seen. Any thoughts about this one? In my opinion it seems that it may have two different layers of paint, and not intentionally camo...
    Thank you

    Bad Pictures and hard to see any detail. I can talk for the paint but I can see its been rubbed at some point and someone has been decal digging which is a pity. Leather and inside look ok. Unless its a bargain I would give it a miss

    Edit* Is that a black basecoat to the camo?

    It also appears some one has removed paint searching for decals.

    Sorry about the pictures, they are taken by the auctioneers in my area, and they don't have steady hands. The base coat is black but above it looks almost tan, not white, and has been smudged over in an olive green paint.

    here are two extra images. The backside of the helmet, where you can see all the color variations and the inside, where it is in fact black.

    I don't like the almost 'untouched' colouring of the liner pins
    against the rubbed and worn finish of the shell.........
    Regards,
