    Hello, nkumburis mate. Check out the thread that NickD provided.
    Need oppinions on a 517th lid - U.S. Militaria Forum

    Don't know why on this one, but I have a real bee in the bonnet. I'm just old and crotchety I guess. Somebody is going to be relieved of a lot of cash shortly.

    Best Regards,

    Some people just have too much money.

    I have never seen this type of 'camo' before. I know how it was done,
    just never seen them until now. Indeed, an unusual shade of green
    to use on a helmet.........

    It certainly is. If you follow the link in the thread, you can see how the reenactor made it.

    I feel sad for the reenactor, to have lost so much original stuff because of an idiot painter.

    The painted over net configuration was done in the early part of WWII. However, the net used to make the helmet in question was not used by U.S. troops and was not available until long after the time period in which this helmet would have been found. Conclusion: a fool and his money...
