    Default Luftwaffe Camo M42 Green FD Helmet

    I found this helmet on a website for $420. Is this one original... I have outlined the eagle visible under the paint.

    Here is the sellers description:

    "This is a solid example of a Luftwaffe field div helmet. It is a standard m42 helmet painted over in war time green field paint. It is not a super screaming 3 color camo, but the paint is has a nice color and is about 95%. The original decal is visible under the green paint. The liner has never been moved, and all 3 rivets and spacers are un re-bent The liner is solid except for one dry break. Inside you can see a very nice dome stamp. This is overall a really good example of a Luftwaffe field div. helmet."

    It appears to be good. Maybe a little glossy looking but that could be the light?

    Most Luftwaffe M42's used by the Feld Divisions will be blue/grey inside, but with an exterior stripped back and then painted feldgrau.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Do you think that the paint is original? Some other people said it was bad, but I cant see why.

    I honestly would like to see it in hand. The best I can say is it stands a chance. My concern is how glossy it appears and the general lack of wear.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The seller said he had bright lights shining on it, to make it look better for the pictures.

    John means it is a common excuse. It is a saying here in England.

    So what do you think of the paint? I am new to collecting so I do not know to much.

    I know you said it looked glossy, but what else is wrong with it?

    I dont have experience about reissued helmets, but i think it's too glossy and it's appears too clean to me.
