Nice helmet. Your first ? Has it been repainted ?
Looks blue-green from the photos.........
Not sure if repainted , the colour does look different in the pictures , they were taken on my phone, colour is more a dark greeny grey. but yeah may well of had a repaint.
looking at it more could be blue-green. either way quite happy as not expensive and looks ok on the shelf, what post war uses had that colour scheme would be interested on ideas.
I think its definately been repainted at some time, look at the liner ring its been painted the same colour in situ with the leather removed
Unless it was a Norwegian re-issue, or a repainted Czech or Latvian lid,
it should not have had any post-war military usage.........
Repsinted, but still a nice tidy helmet....congrats
As a Ex servicemen with PTSD, I see this quote in a different context
"Enjoy the war, as the peace will be unbearable"
Thanks for that
just noticed split pin marked mss 41 is that correct for this type, are we thinking the paint is not a period paint job but post war.
It's possible. Hard to tell from these pics though.........
