Hi! Long time lurker, just got approved as a memeber, and this is my first post! It's been incredibly fascinating for me to learn about these helmets and all of the little intricacies that make them so cool. While I've been learning a lot about these helmets I still need help from the experts here.

I've had this M1 fixed bail helmet for a while now, but I am still confused as to what exactly I have. Meaning, based on the pictures alone, can anyone identify whether or not this helmet received a repaint in the field during WWII, or does it appear to be a Korean War repaint? From what I've read before, it appears to me to be a Korean War repaint, as its fairly glossy, but you guys really are the experts. If you need any other pictures let me know!
