    Looks like winter whitewash may have been applied and later cleaned off perhaps. Rivets look swapped out as well, maybe its from the flash glare.

    Hi doug, excuse my poor english, what do you mean for "swapped out" rivets?

    Ok, I took advantage by the sunlight to take some more pics of this helmet. As you can see, there is some white stuff (it's not dust) inside the areators. I didn't buy the helmet as former-winter camo, but just as a plain sd luft, which probably is. However, I'd like to have your opinion on it.
    Thanks,

    M.

    it's a good helmet , it could have been winter camoed and brushed off again hence the faded adler.

    Definatly looks like it had been white washed and then removed, have a ND M42 just like it myself, but with a tad more whitewash. Very nice lid!
