    Hello Forum,

    A friend got this helmet as a gift, makers mark and Lotn. overpainted. The liner is gone, but the band is def. original and the split pins seem unmolested. It seems like there was a decal once, but it was completly scratched off. The chinstrap is mostly gone, but there are remains of an post-war repair.

    In general i believe this may have been used by kids to play with, but it may be an original camouflage, a very nice one at that.

    All opinions and comments greatly appreciated!

    Really really hard to tell from these in door photos.

    From what I can see, I think the exterior camo is ok. Yes the interior looks like it was cobbled together for a kid to wear. Can't say much about the paint on the skirt.

    Nice exterior photos that are clear and no bright flash would help.

    From these pictures I’m not a fan of it, I see shiny bare metal on the air vents and around the rim the paint looks scrubbed. But as said better pictures are needed.

    Hmmmm...... inside skirt looks to be a DAK like pinky, is that a black coat of paint under the exterior camo? A lot to unpack with this one.

    The more I look... the more confused I am... and the less I comfortable I am.

    I´m not sure if its a pink, i tend more to a tan, which the first pics support. Seems to me like the tan is the base layer, maybe a general southern front camo which was later reworked into more of a normandy color. The black spots are supposedly bare metal which has darkened. The colors in general seem to vary much, depending on the light.

    Camo's and Photos.....never a match for in hand. I'm 50/50. Still unsure about the "black" being bare metal, at least in some places. I think I see black paint on the split pin heads too.

    I’m still not a fan of this one, in the exterior scratches in the paint I see a lot of clean looking paint in them and the wear in general looks artificial to me.
