Need Help to Identify a WWII US M1 Paint Scheme

Article about: It looks like it has been there for a very long time. There could be a variety of reasons why it was painted this way. I doubt that it was done postwar or for camouflage purposes.

    Default Need Help to Identify a WWII US M1 Paint Scheme

    Ok, I have a WWII US M1 pot (fixed bale, front seam) with a strange paint scheme. It looks like old paint, but I'm not familiar with the design... can anyone tell me anything about this paint scheme???
    HELMET HEAT STAMP #195C

    Thanks in advance!

    That's very odd... I've never seen something like this before. I'm eager to hear what other members have to say!

    This is odd, i never seen this type of paint scheme before maybe it a post war done paint (it seems like it to me). We will see what some of m1 helmet collectors say.

    Not sure what it is but I don't think it's been painted up for paintballing or anything like that, it looks likes it's been there for a while, as Chris pointed out! Gonna watch this thread close and see if someone comes up with a good explination.
