More of this type of Flak helmets may come to surface?

 

I missed this posting back in 2014. Cool helmet. I agree with PacificGunner - I don't think the painted swastika on this helmet is the same as those seen on the M3's that have been described as the surplus store additions. Here's a modified M3 from my collection that I've posted before. It has the insignia for the 31st Bomb Squadron on the front (and 31st written on the top of the skull). The ear flaps are missing - perhaps done by a turret gunner to make it more compact.
