I recently purchased a couple of US helmets at an estate sale. As you can see in the pictures one has what I believe to a lieutenant bar painted on the front of it and on the sides it has two decals, "ESSAYERONS" on it. Anyway I speak fluent French so I know it says " we'll try " .so based on that I thought it might be some kind of a combat enginner helmet but I'm not 100% sure so I thought someone could confirm what I at first thought
Moreover the second one I bought off of a friend a while back. I only paid 45€ for it so I don't think it was a fortune. Anyway as you can see it's an MP helmet. And my friend told me the story behind it. His house in Differdange Luxembourg was used as a medevac hospital during WW2 and he still has a bunch of German and US pins and more....But someone told me it's a bad fake . He said the MP was applied terribly and incorrectly. But I'm pretty sure it's authentic . And I was hoping somebody could confirm that also.
Thx in advance.
