I just acquired this steel pot.  I noticed the MP markings under the OD paint and decided to uncover them.  It turns out to be an MP helmet for the 24th Infantry Division.  

 

I am not real well versed in helmets let alone painted helmets, but I think this might date from around the 50s and 60s.  

 

Any observations or comments would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

 

Dennis

Right side.  The insignia is painted, it is not a decal.
