I got it from an antique shop.
Hi Wesley, this one looks like it is an original M35 double decal HEER helmet that has had a field over paint as the inner surface is still apple green. The over paint then looks to have been "scrubbed" to reveal the decals beneath. I think that was done some time ago and over all does not detract from the helmet, it is not a factory re-issue helmet as that would have been stripped right down and then re-painted. Even though the liner is not the early "square bale" type most often seen in M35's I think it is original to the helmet, at the very least it is a period replacement. Leon.

I think Leon pretty much nailed it -- the tricolor almost looks painted?
original big foot decal , the tricolor could have been slightly dug out from the reissue paint
Salty, but nice......... !
