    Default A question about my helmet. Plz help.

    I have a German Helmet that my grandfather gave me, he took it from a Nazi Sergeant.

    The front of the green helmet looks to have and upside down V and three black dots to the left of the V. I have found out that this officer was the equivalent of a Sergent, but I do not know what the three black dots stand for.

    Can anybody help me. I can provide a pic if necessary.

    A couple of pictures would certainly do no harm.

    Cheers,

    Welcome to the site. Pictures of the helmet are almost a must. There are many members here who are very knowledgeable and will give you info on the helmet itself and the markings. Good luck, John

    Ok I took these photos with my camera phone, really I am just worried about who the officer was that wore this helmet, I have no intention to sell it. If you need a better pic I will find a normal camera to link up. Thanks so much.

    Looks like some type of GI paint job done after the helmet was "liberated" from the original owner or just post war done at some point. IMO nothing that the German Army would allow a soldier to have painted on his lid.
