    Default Opinion on this africa helmet

    Hi, I would appreciate to get your thoughts of this M42 Africa tanned helmet. For me it looks like the decal might have been removed and then painted over again. What do you think of it in general?

    Regards
    Sander

    I kind of like parts of it I see is what I would expect to see on a tropical helmet I don't know what the guys that are more knowledgable on cammo will say I don't own or have very many cammo's and avoid a lot of them. timothy

    Hi , well what I can see is that a lot of the wear on this one is not natural. There are so many "tool marks/scratches" that are running at the same angle from the crown of the helmet downwards,especially at the rear of the helmet. I do however like the shade of colour but I think on the whole I would have to many doubts about the wear on this one. Leon.

    I agree about the paint it looks to have a chance, but the wear is odd as you say but who knows how this has been treated for the past 70 years, maybe a kid has played with it!..

    Its a shame to pass if it is a good one. It would be one for an in hand look. If the paints fake its very well done. I wouldn't put your wallet on my opinion, I just thought I would share it!

    The exterior is very worn but the liner shows little signs of the same level of usage, Hmmm.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Maaaybe, I don't know if that liner belongs to that helmet though.

    Also it wouldn't really be an Afrika Korps lid being an M42.
