    OK guys, what about this relic, eh? ....... what a garish shade of green - BUT surely it's legit because it's a dug relic .....Whaaaat?

    So it got me thinking on weird cammo patterns ( or alternative colour paintwork.) How could we tell ( using this possible example ) whether the paint was wartime done or if a kid in the 1950's painted a helmet and then it got dumped, buried and dug up decades later ?? ...... I guess as implausible as it may be, we can't really tell - but sheez, this one is just kooky!!!

    Taste the paint. If it tastes 70 years old than its good

    Not sure when they are in this condition. Experience is the best bet.
