    With camo helmets you have to be very careful,there is so many fakes and yes the best way is to get it from the vet.

    Well, my dad bought it. I'll take better pics when it gets here.
    He also bought this one...

    I'm afraid he's caught the collecting bug. Thanks to me

    I personally think the photo's are no way good enough to make a reasonable evaluation.On any other Stahlhem forum you would be asked for better, clearer more detailed photo's and a lot number and makers mark before anyone would give the thumbs up. This forum is a little slack on that regard to say the least, and as for camo helmets with fully visible decals being quite 'common', I must have just missed them all..A lot of M42's left the factories with no decals at all.

    Hello,
    I fully agree on the first comment.
    Apparently, yes you've missed them all. Personally i wouldn't use the word "common".....please, gentlemen, don't forget that many decals have been dug up long after the war.

    I think you are right about it not being a camo, not sure its a period repaint though. As Jerry said, the paint does look a little fresh, but the proof of this pudding will be in the decal and I'm not confident enough to be bandying my thoughts on that around.

    When I get the helmet I'll try to get a close photo of the decal and well go from there...

    At first glance the decal does have ET style characteristics.
