    The CD logo is from 1939 http://www.nytimes.com/2006/12/01/wa...ivil.html?_r=0, so would mean these helmets were issued during WWII. I've seen others but they have all been white.

    I don't know much abut the CD structure, I would think either early issue Nice painted badge on the front.

    I like it a lot
