    The miss match in condition between the interior and exterior give a high probability that the exterior has been aged and the interior has not, a fairly common mistake made by fakers.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Stan a medic lid like this would not have been in only a snow environment, the white is to stand out rather than blend in. Purposefully killing medics was against the Geneva convention but war isn't a tickling competition and things happened, there are enough good medic lids in collections to say that GI's did pick these up in whatever circumstances. Most wear is on the crown as that is the natural resting point for the helmet because of the centre of gravity, it's where it wants to be. Other wear from bumps and grazes is always random. The crown wear is usually more consistent and heavier, but in proportion to the rest of wear.

    Just general points, not really focussing on the helmet in the thread.

    PS I can't find the pics now but there are some cool shots of a Captured German combat medic working as such for the Americans. He has armbands, a vest and his helmet with the red cross on, along with his own medical kit in an MG42 ammo can.
    Thanks for correcting me on that one, haha I completely forgot that they where painted white to stand out.

    You got to get out of the shade bud. It's camouflaging the details. Try to capture the entire helmet in the lighting such as picture number 18 from your last post, especially the exterior, I assume.

    I like it. We just dont know why the wear of the liner doesn't match the wear of the shell.

    Sorry Sean I still have to plead the 5th until pics where the entire helmet is lit. Stand with your back to the light source.

    These latest photos are really no better than any others posted.

    Part of the problem with the pics is a stark white background.
    It makes the camera ( hopefully it's a quality camera and not
    a phone ) drop the exposure to make up for the brightness
    it 'sees' or registers, and they are also taken too early
    or to late in the day.........
