I thought I'd show my French lid before it's boxed and put away, the much maligned "Otan," or M51
I really don't know much about these, I came about it by accident really. It is not one that I would purposely include in
my collection, but each to his own, beauty is in the eye of the beholder etc..............
Anyway, it has a green liner chinstrap which I've never seen. Under the paint there is a sort of desert tan?
Not the best looking thing, but that's just my opinion, though the tan paint looks interesting.
It's dented and battered, so I suspect it has a tale to tell.
