Ok, this is literally making me want to pull my hair out. The other day I got this M1 helmet for $45 at a gun show (the actual story is I got the liner for $45 and traded the fixed bail that came with it for Korean War reenacting). The shell is a front seam, which automatically makes it WWII manufactured. However, the paint scheme is what is messing me up. Obviously there were was no one paint scheme, however this is what I would classify as a lime green, so what I'm wondering is whether it's Korean War or Vietnam repaint, and whether the few dark spots I see on it are the original WWII paint. If this is definitely a Korean War repaint, I'm leaving it as is. The inner shell is definitely a more olive color than the outside. The liner looked like it was painted from Vietnam? So I started taking some of it off, and the original olive is showing, however I can not get just the olive as the over-paint is an absolute pain to get off (I used acetone). So overall, what in the world do I have here? I understand this is my first post, so I am sorry if my tone seems rather snappy, but this is really giving me a headache. And I thought German helmets were bad Thanks for any help in advance!
