    Interesting....as wierd as it looks, that Cammo is very much of "the period" Art Deco if you will.....I know the French employed artists to design their camouflage, and this does remind me of the types of camouflage patterns produced....

    To my eyes it does have a very period look

    Hi , that is a very unusual pattern of cammo , that said I actually quite like it! It certainly appears to have age to it and apart from a few scratches that look very similar it looks good. Those scratches if they were all around the helmet would make me say "tooled and aged" fake but they are not,only one small area. I am leaning towards this possibly being a good helmet,the edges of the rim look consistently aged and I like the rust peep through too.The condition of the liner seems consistent to the shell as well. That said an in hand with this as with any cammo would be needed. Leon.

    The photos are way too bad to authenticate that camo but it appears to be in a collector's hands.
    I would proceed with caution and don't get your hopes up , so far I am not a fan.

    The paint looks really pretty, but not old IMHO, but better pics might help or at least if those posted were directly to the site where you could then have a proper look at them rather than linked might help. Even then, still needs better pics in daylight to really tell, but to my eyes not period done.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Looks like painted postwar to me, but better pictures can help to confirm
