    Hi Nick
    Medic helmets are amongst the toughest to determine via forum photos, and often you get a wide range of opinion. For me this helmet screams postwar painted due to the surface scratching (repetitive toolmarking), the absence of natural wear in areas you'd expect like raised areas and the dome.
    Sorry but thats how she looks.

    Doug has said pretty much all - can I also comment that with all the scuff marks and scratches abounding on this one that (if) they were genuine, then the rim is noticeably free of wear. For me, envisioning a helmet being bumped around the edges a lot by a Sanitater in combat, I would be looking for more abrasion there.

    Can you post a pic of liner? Medic helmets are always a challenge. To me the crosses look to be poorly executed. did you throw a black light on it? just my 2 cents

    Hello
    I don't see it as WW2 maybe something done postwar to fall in line with the Geneva Convention, other than the vent close up the pictures are poor imo.

    Hi, sorry mate, but this is another messed with helmet. The wear to the paint work is contrived with repetitive tool marks and bumping. Leon.

    Agree with the others, it's a shame to find your treasured possession is dodgy but those long scratch marks are a big giveaway and some ares look like they've been hit with a scuff of course sandpaper.

    BTW Hoss, what would the Geneva convention have to do with this? Curious to learn something new.
