Anything? I bought these for $50 each several years ago. After reading through some of the threads I gather a "stinker" is a fake LOL. For all I know these could be stinkers. Real or fake I'd really like to know anything you guys can tell me. Thanks.
Looks like a easy_green job.
It was definitely painted to deceive. The insignia on the side is for the US Tank Destroyers, and it would not go with the 8th Infantry Division insignia on the front. Both insignia are also lacking the appropriate age and wear I would expect and neither are in a style known to have been used by the respective groups during the war.(I own an original 8th Division helmet and added a photo for example) I also believe the chinstraps may not be original but the photos aren't close enough to tell. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
Ahhh no bad news. For $50 they make good decor.
at least they are good fakes LOL.
