  1. Fair enough! Curious to hear other opinions.
  2. That helmet looks awfully shiny to me, my guess is that it's rust that's been clear coated. Without having it in hand it's hard to say. Would it be possible to take photos outside?
  3. First of all, amazing helmet! That is a great find, I've always wanted one of those! Yes, these helmets were used primarily for Operation Dragoon, but there has been some discussion that they may have been used in Italy as well. The card suit markings were used by the 7th Infantry Regiment to denote the three battalions (plus HQ). This thread covers off on more of the detail, and has some beautiful examples. http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/96088-us-7th-infantry-regiment-helmet-markings-1944/ Again, amazing helmet, thank you for sharing!
