    Default M1 ETO Officer relic?

    Hi folks,

    I kinda love these things. Doesn't always have to be a near mint M1.
    This one caught my attention, showing the remains of what could have been a follow me bar on the rear.
    Also front and right side show remains of white paint.
    Any thoughts?

    Thanks for any given info.

    Peter

    Looks like a nice relic. Congrats

    Hard to see the painted parts in detail. Decals and paint are always difficult to confirm on relics without having them in hand. But I see no visible red flags.

    Thanks for the reply! Appreciated!

    I added the supposed stripe in more detail. Since I do not have any reference in the house, I wouldn't know if genuine old paint looks like this.

    It is interesting in that it appears to look like captains bars. (Two lines). Something I haven't seen before. I've only seen single bars. The paint however looks convincing although it appears to have paint going much further up on the right

    Let's see what others say

    Thanks MAP,
    The paint detail is of the back of the helmet, as in 3rd and 4th photo from the top. what could be a remain of a follow me stripe.
    Front and side of the helmet also have white paint remains but no shape can be distinguished there.

    I think pictures taken in daylight might show this relic more effectively.

    yes. I was looking at the leader bar in the back. It looks convincing but still a unique two bar design. As noted however there appears to be additional specks/remnants of paint above the leader bar though.

    Agree, outside photos might help

    And hopefully others will be around to opine e as well.

    Goodday guys,

    Relaunching this topic.
    As requested I've added some outside pictures, asking your experts opinions.

    CO bar remains or not.. that is the question!

    All input appreciated!

    It looks like a single leadership stripe to me.
