    The insignia is of the US 71st Army, so my guess would be a trophy helmet, and the winter camo post war.

    Activated: 15 July 1943.
    Overseas: 26 January 1945.
    Campaigns: Rhineland, Central-Europe
    Days of combat: 62.
    Returned to U.S.: 10 March 1946.
    Inactivated: 12 March 1946.

    Thank you very much for the reply and the info. Overall do you think that it is an all original WW2 German helmet (Shell and liner) and what do you think a good price would be? Thank you again!

    I'd pass. White looks artifically aged and scuffed up..

    I believe I have seen this helmet before on eBay? Paint is post war in my opinion.
