    M38 need the combined knowledge of this forum for an authenticationHello all.
    Firstly I would like to thank all who spare some time to assist with this authentication.
    I have here a M38 in tropical cam that needs the works in way of authentication ie:
    Shell
    Decal
    Harness
    Liner
    Paint job
    Rubber inserts
    1x liner bolt obviously reproduction.
    This helmet is of great interest to me so any and all assistance is appreciated.
    I have attached some photos that I hope will be of help and have some more available if needed.
    Apologies for the order of the photos.
    Again thanks.M38 need the combined knowledge of this forum for an authenticationM38 need the combined knowledge of this forum for an authenticationM38 need the combined knowledge of this forum for an authenticationM38 need the combined knowledge of this forum for an authenticationM38 need the combined knowledge of this forum for an authentication

    From what I can see with these very limited photos, the basic helmet seems to be okay. The shell, liner and straps all look to be original. I would hesitate to make a call on the paint from these pictures alone. It seems like there are a lot of "busy" scratches to the camo paint but this one needs an in hand inspection to make a good decision. A full shot of the liner and the complete straps would be useful as well. It has a chance but no way to tell from these photos. Good close-ups of every little detail and overall shots inside and out, front, back, and both sides, are desperately needed!

    Cheers,
    Terry

    Thanks Terry
    As I only had limited time with the helmet I cracked off as many photos as possible, so tried for quantity over quality.
    Hopefully these next photos will help.
    Again thanks for sharing your knowledge and thoughts.

    Thanks for the additional photos. Other than the mis-matched bolt on the left side, I see no red flags. In fact, this has a real good chance to be a very desirable original DAK/tropical camo. If the price is right and you get return privileges, I would take a chance and go for it. Good luck!

    Cheers,
    Terry

    Thanks Terry for the positive feedback.
    I have my fingers crossed.
