    Default Real US M1 Helmet with real Captain Emblem and Unit Rank?

    Stumbled across a Rear Seam M1 that a seller claims is original World War 2. It has Captain's bars along with a follow me bar. Obviously many of us are aware of how rare a Captain's helmet is, but add it has 3rd Infantry painted on the side. I almost never buy painted helmets for this reason, most are fakes or reproductions. I have very serious doubts about this helmet, and many things don't look right, but for $14.00 from a guy who claims to know little about them I figured I might as well give it a second opinion. Your thoughts as to the originality of the paint? Chinstraps don't look right either. Just figured I would ask since it was cheap, maybe get lucky.

    All bad. Avoid. Even at that price.
