    It seems to be hand painted and not a decal. Hard to make any form of judgement from this limited picture. Some foreign units wore hand painted national color shields on their helmets.

    Unfortunately this would be a difficult helmet to authenticate, even with better pictures. Such is the situation with hand-painted emblems.

    It should be bought as a no-decal M42 in my opinion, and nothing more.

    Too bad you didn't find it in the trash.....
    With the other finds you have found there free is great.
