    Looks like a post war black painted M42 with a liberated Heer decal.
    Agree Frank
    Not enough gold to be KM (The flakes have probably toned over the years) and that black paint sure looks like it's been rubbed down

    TIP- Those goggles were used by foward artillary observers (to see enmey tracers from MG posisions in daylight), machinegunners(to see their blanks in daylight), and fighter pilots would wear them for a few hours before a night mission so they can get used to seeing in the dark..just that might make more specific to where it was found (unless he just found the goggles off another and put them on)....GREAT BUY!!!!!and as someone said try asking for $50 if she really just wants it gone...

    Forgive my candor...but if you had offered her $50.00 I would have wondered what kind of a friend YOU were...
