    Hi, Nick. Sorry for the late reply on this.

    It is a cool helmet with a very unusual cover ! I believe though, that the star
    is a piece of costume glitz, seeing that it has multiple pointed fasteners.

    Generals stars are normally either pin-back, clutch-back,
    or for helmets, screw-back.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    well unfortunately i have no way of proving this is nothing more then fantasy piece its been suggested it may have been an advisers helmet with the use of this type of cover as for the star maybe they thought it looked better than the normal star they would have had but its all only guess work

    Even if the star isn't original, I think it's a very nice display piece. The camo pattern looks oddly familiar though...
    Got any group shots of all your M1s?
