Article about: by Stinschen Enlighten us on what? On why it's painted black. Flak gunners often had them painted black, but don't know if that applies to KM or KArt.

    Congrats on this helmet
    I like KM stuff too. Is the paint of the lid so dark or is it just the photo?

    It is BLACK, but matte paint... I suppose that its a field repaint job, the liner band has traces of paint on it, that is at least what seller Dick & Joe Pankowski told me. For use in Coastal artillery/anti-aircraft units, maybe?

    Edit: I did use flash when taking the photos, hence the very dark black paint. When looking at the helmet in natural light, it looks like a lighter shade of black, if it makes sense?

    Hmm i have no idea. I have never seen a black paint on a KM helmet before
    Mine has that green/grey color that the battleships were also painted with.
    Maybe another more experienced ''helmet guy'' can enlighten us
