    Default Opinions M42 Camo for sale?

    I found an M42 camo helmet locally (ET66) that I am interested in buying, It appears to be a Police helmet since it has the NSDAP decal, on the other side where a decal would be it is scratched. I am concerned since I do not know much about camo helmets but is places you can see the field grey underneath the scratches and I know the shell is good.
    The Decal has rust in places looking like it has been there a while but partial painted over. It appears someone was looking for more under the paint postwar...
    The liner has a redish tint but i think it is from rot since its really brittle I am not sure on the 58 size stamp
    Opinions welcome I am new to German Lids.

    The Decal is on the left side obviously and on the right side there is just scratched metal in the shape of a decal you can see it if you zoom in on picture 2

    I am no expert in camos by any means, but that paint looks a little like some Norwegian helmets I've seen.
    The shape of the missing paint, where it looks like decals have been, are the shape of Norwegian decals IMO.
    The liner colouring is a red dye that is used on Norwegian reissued liners from what I can see in the photos.
    I can't really comment on the decals that are showing underneath other than there appears to be more than one, might even be a
    Heer decal under the NSDAP shield

    Lidman is spot on a Norwegian rework of an M42, certainly not period camo. The decals will be real then but in the state its in I wouldnt bother

    Yeah Lidman did a good job Thanks for the info I was really confused because the paint scheme looked like a m35 at first. I learned something new today!
    Anyways like I said on the other thread I am looking for an M40 sd in slightly weathered shape but with a liner and possibly a chin strap. Keep in mind I go to college have a dis-functional car and a lot of bills so money is not abundant in my area, or would have got this...

    Max would be around $500 but it would take me a while to get that.
