    Default M35 possible camo helmet - opinion needed

    Hello gentlemen.
    Obviously I need your help again I got very good deal yesterday with this old timer. It looks like has a several layers of paint ( whatever is left ) . I am wondering if it`s a camo at all or it used to be a camo helmet ( DAK perhaps and then post war repainted ). I would appreciate any comments and opinions.
    Thank you all in advance!

    The bottom tan camo may have a chance, but the green does not. Is there anyother story to the helmet? Was the old timer a vet? How did he get the helmet?

    Thanks for your response Marty.
    I believe the helmet is found in Bulgarian military barrack long ago,that's why I am on the same page with you about the green paint. To me it looks like a post war paint,but like you said the bottom one i believe is original

    P.S. Sorry,when I sad a Old timer,I meant the helmet

    Regards!

    I remember seeing this same grass green color on the undersides of skirts on German helmets-and it was certainly a period done paint. No idea what it Means, but this same color Was to be found on German helmets that I've seen.

    Thanks fellas. What about the bottom paint? Is it possible to be a DAK camo? Basically I am more curious about it

    Well, I think it stands a chance - both the tan paint and the green. Wear seams consistent.

    Any chance of outdoor shots?

    Yup, the troops used every kind of paint when they were reassigned from the tropen to the inner parts. Since its an non reissue M35 with quite sweat-stained liner, it actually couldve been DAK but lets speculate after the new pics.
