3rd Infantry Divison Helmet Opinions

Article about: Bought this helmet off ebay and would like some opinions on the insignia. It's a rear seam schlueter with od7 straps. The liner is a Firestone with green painted A-washers and a green buckle

    WW II 3rd helmets had smaller size insignia on them.
    I thought a 2"x2" insignia was used at some point, which is what this one measures.

    Is that implying you think it might be fake?
    As you said: 'Either way I'm happy to display it'.

    ( for $75 I'd be happy too.........! )

    If you notice the blue paint isn't as weathered as the white. I believe this is like that by artificial ageing.
    Just my opinion.

    It looks good to me. and under the circumstances it was not sold to fool by the sounds of it.
    If I were you I would contact the seller politely and ask them a few questions about it, you may find out who the original owner was with a bit of luck. I've did this before explaining that I like to keep any history with the item in question. some people are kind enough to reply, some do not.
    best of luck

    If Troy from USM forum said it is a good helmet I would lean towards with him. Marty
