WWII German OD Camouflage Luftwaffe Helmet Thoughts?

Article about: Usually the silver on the eagle decal takes on a "golden" hue with age. This particular gold may be due to the added varnish.. Hard to tell which one´s the case here but hope this

    Looks all original to me, but I don't think it is a camo. It looks more like a factory M42 luft that has been lacquered. The lacquer has aged and taken on the dark brown tone. Not a bad pot!

    Looks more varnished than camo'ed.

    Looks like a fine helmet. Any way to get a photo of the decal without the flash?

    Id have to agree with the fellas above. Very shiny appearance to the shell, typical of a treated helmet. The rest looks honest enough. Yes, a pic of the decal minus the flash would be good.

    Does the gold colored eagle represent anything? All of the luft symbols I have seen were white and I have never seen a gold one.
    Thank You
