    Default Repro medic painted m1?

    This m1 is a front seam swivel bail, and I'm pretty sure that the medic markings are reproduction, and am just wondering what you guys think. I just don't think it shows the age I would expect from a period piece. The helmet is pieced with a KW paratrooper liner.

    I wouldn't mind having a repro medic on the shelf, but I don't want to pay the price of a real one.

    I am pretty sure this is a repro the wear on the white compared to the rest of the helmet does not really match, could you post more pictures of the helmet also

    Waste of time,Fake paint job and repro webbed chinstraps,although the liner is genuine and produced by either Westinghouse in 1958 or Firestone and MarMac in 1962,shame because these liners are very collectable in there own right.............
