    This is what I consider a winter finish would look like 70 years after the fact ( yes, I know they are relics but its the patina I'm referring to)
    The opening helmet is what it would have looked like at the time - NOT 7 decades later ........IMO

    Cheers, Dan

    Too many flags for me, very few quist m42s were issued, most are found in post war configuration, the paint looks suspect, the inside looks abraded....is that liner dated 1940?

    This one was whitewashed not that long ago , a real winter white camo would be going for much more than this.

    There are quite a few genuine ones on the forum ( not relics ) to compare this one with !!
