    hey guys, stumbled upon this guy selling a original m1c front seam helmet and i got a bit suspicious when i saw that the A strap buckles are painted olive drab. was this a common practice in ww2, and also i can't make out if the A straps are olive drab or khaki, anyone know? thanks a bunch. Here's a link to the auction.

    this type of of "A" strap came ii to use from September 1943 but i would not touch that lid with a 10 foot barge poll as the shell chin straps are repro & the liner sweatband & nape strap are post war which to me puts a big question mark over the whole set up !!!
