    Default WW2 US M1 hand painted blackdevils Helmet

    Hey guys, short notice but saw this Blackdevils Helmet on ebay, just was curious for some opinions. My initial reaction was that the painting looked awfully straight edged, professionally done, and the font on the crest looked to well done. I dont know how to say it, just didnt have a hand touch to it. looks like everythings been done with masking and stencils and is to crisp. Am I over reacting?

    That's what I was thinking, I have seen one for sale recently actually from Dave S. The hand art on that was different and shows that hand touch. My opinion was this art looked to neat and clean, and even the white on the lettering was too bleached. No an expert myself but was curious to see what everyone thought

    NO good to me the paint reminds me of repro work on the exterior. Also this person has no feedback not a very good sign. Also in about 10 years I have never seen a paint helmet not to say they are not out there but the chances are slim not a fan of the paint on this one at all
