    I just don't see the logic behind medics having camo lids, they wanted to stand out and that was the idea of having the big bright red cross!..

    I don't have a problem with the helmet, I just do not believe that it is a "Camo" helmet. Based off the style of markings and the condition of the shell I would say that the helmet was probably used by a shipboard USN corpsman. The markings are probably from sometime between the end of Korea and the end of Vietnam.

    If it was any good it would have cost 4 times that much.

    Yes, helmets painted white overall were very common in the USN. The style was used throughout the life of the M1 and was one of the last instances of medic marked helmets you would see in the armed forces. Being a rear seam helmet it would never have made it into a theater that had snow before the war ended.
