    Default Vichy French Helmet on ebay ?

    I started this thread just to discuus this helmet currently listed on ebay. I have not intention of bidding but I'm trying to learn to pick up on details. I'm also curious if this seller has an active imagination or these helmets actually existed. It's listed as a German helmet wiith Vichy french insignia. Did the vichy wear German Helmets ? I thought they had their own unforms & equipment. Also the 33rd Grenadier Div SS Charlemagne would have worn SS helmets I assume. When I look at this helmet all I see is an M35 M40 helmet with a poorly painted tri color shield with a litle blue in it, Curiously enough only the blue part of the shield has worn off, Am I wrong ? The split pins have no paint left on them either , added after the fact or is it possible for the paint to wear so thoroughly off the pins only ? Anyway it's up to $500 fake or not.Thanks for any info, Al

    Hi Al, it is junk.

    The Vichy French did not wear this pattern helmet.

    Cheers, Ade.
