    Here is an 100% original WW2 German M 42 three color Camo Helmet which in very good conditon with damaged but original leather as shown. The helm is straight from the WW2 Vet's Estate and is unaltered. The helm is size 66, the maker is ckl, and the number is 3022. The liner's leather is damaged as shown but is mostly there. A nice, unquestionably original WW2 German Camo Helm that will display impressively. This auction complys with all eBay rules. PLEASE DO NOT ASK TO LOWER THE CUSTOMS FORM VALUE. Please read all terms of this auction before bidding. Will combine multiple purchases to save on shipping.

    It's rare to see an Ebay camo looking this good. Shows promise, IMO but caution is always the word of the day. Seller is familiar with collector terms such as 'three color camo', 'unquestionable' and 'displays impressively'.

    Help for m42 snow cam and 3color cam


    I could tell just from the title that things would not go well. Two low quality movie props; better lighting not needed although this is a common trick when photographing questionable snow camos, low lighting, shaded photos help to tone down the bright paint.

    I believe it was stated that the subject helmet was cleaned. That can account for a changed appearance in paint.

    GHW2 camo Mediterranean theater ?

    This camo has a lot of nice features. The pattern is really non-distinct, just blotches and marks here and there. It is not a nice bold tiger stripe, SS dot or swirl pattern. No fancy sand or woodchip media, just paint. Much varied wear and has seen substantial use, no large areas of pristine condition paint.

    Who knows really, but it's good IMHO. Neat helmet.

    Another nice GHW2 camo. A Normandy 3-color that shows age and wear. What ?? No fancy woodship or sand media, no fancy distinct patterns, no bright shiny finish, no chicken/bailing wire, no heavy finish popped off to bare metal, no obviously bad RAL colors ??
