I know what these markings appear to be. Not Airborne but very rare if it is what I think it is.
Care to share grasshopper? MTO?vv

The yellow bars were painted by 36th ID officers for the invasion of Salerno. Most were overpainted afterwards, making this extremely rare if it is indeed legit.

just a little observation---- he has another helmet with captain bars. the description on that is the same as the one in this thread and from the same named Sullivan!

I also posted a photo of similar markings being used in France.

Not sure how you can tell if it is a good one with those poor quality photos.

The helmets were part of larger group of items all from two trunks. There were a pair of jump boots, M3 knife, misc field gear, pinks, shirts and an Officers Jacket with an Airborne patch. The estate seller couldn't provide much on identification.
Are you the seller or just asked the seller questions? Would be interesting to see these groups.

The ebay seller info says he is from Tennessee, not North Carolina.

Anton- Tri-Cities area of Eastern TN is only a couple hours from me. Not that far.

appears not be "Sullivan" inside the CPT Shell. I wonder if the seller didn't see the board comments because now there are better photos. Could be seen as a guest of course.
