A quick question regarding this CAMO work....legit or post-war?

Article about: Recently i've stubled into this helmet, having this long term fantasy to own a M17. I'm pretty positive that the helmet is ok, but what about the camo paint? Is it genuine or a post war impr

    It doesn't give me the two second good feeling upon seeing it. Not saying it is bad or fake but it lacks something that would make it a one looker.
    I bet it will be cheap but for your own enjoyment I would search for a better example.

    I'd be tempted by this lid, regarding the paint around the rear liner pin hole, if the pin was only slightly loose the paint would seep under the liner pin head!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Expect at least $1,200+ for a nice one with a liner,
    and about half that - or even less - without.
    I wouldn't go higher than $350-$400 for
    an empty, faded shell.........

    It looks good to me friend.
    There is wear at the rear rivet hole.
    The wear around the rim is consistent.
    The wear to the paint is right not contrived.
    The $400.00 mark is about right.
