Default FJ SD M38 Helmet Apple Or Camo?

Looking for opinions on this FJ Single Decal M38 Helmet if it is Apple or Green Camouflage? It is an ET68 Shell and batch number 5069. Many thanks!

With a 5069 lot number it would not have smooth apple green paint. It looks to be a well worn and lightly camo painted helmet to me. Nice shell.

Cheers,
Terry

I see a two toned camo in the pics. Looks like a light green base with darker green stripes.
