Default My M-42 winter camo

Gents, I meant to post this after I picked it up at the last SOS. This tired white camo spray looks like its been there. Marked C (then maybe KL? - hard to read). Under that 4400 - all under the back rim. Named to a Lt. I appreciate your thoughts. Thanks


Rich

Certainly is an iffy one, don't care for the looks of the liner. Sorry, but I really don't know what think about the paint.

Won't comment on the shell but the liner looks like it was sandpapered around the edge and about a cm. down. Also the damage to the liner looks odd like it was cut with a knife.
Put it outside in daylight and take some better pictures and make sure they're still

I would not totally rule it out but it is far from a one looker good one, sanded, cleaned and messed about and hard to judge from these pics.

We need to be careful with sentencing helmets without proper info/ pics. Any serious camo collector will tell you that from these pics nobody can give you educated feedback beyond gut feels and high level guesses.

Please post close-ups of the camo under natural sunlight. Add rim shots, pins, scuffs, etc. Then the input you receive will become meaningful.

A winter camo with dark overlay is somewhat unconventional, but possible.
