    in this picture you can see the paint under the dark green to me this looks like the same shade of green they were paint during WW2 pretty much most helmets of this time were just repainted with what ever insignia or markings they had on them have a look here Stock Footage - A man cleaning and repainting helmets of US soldiers piled up on the ground in the European Theater.

    Thanks so much for the video. That could surely explain it. Did anybody else cringe when watching that?

    Nice find, Nick. Did you have an idea of what it was before you bought it?
    Nice restoration by the way.

    Kind Regards,

    Nice video and helmet! I wouldn't mind taking home the medics , MP and 29th div. helmets before they were repainted. - Nick K

    Thanks to everybody for your input and helpful advice, it is very much appreciated.
    Hopefully, if the time off+sunshine combination allows, I will have a couple of Hawley and rayon webbing rigs to show.

    Best Regards,
