Some outside images would help, however I like it and have a similar example.

I would buy it if offered, funky green to the skirt but that could just be the flash making it look that way.
So far I am liking this one.

I like this kind of camo, I've seen a couple that were liberated in the south fo France, retreat road from mediterranean sea.Do you know in which unit served the vet?
It looks to be a nice example, inside rim certainly repainted by the soldier.
Interesting to note that, if yellow and brown paint are thin, the green is really thick and textured, not the same paint used?

Here you go, mine is a tad brighter but similar style, note period B & W image.

Mine originally had a rubber band around while paintt still wet.

That's a nice Camo
I have had several with that bright Green paint on them.
Vet attributed from Italy.

PM if you ever want to do anything with the helmet.
