So, how long before we see helmets painted up like this appear as long lost finds, from a rare and forgotten cache of collected items? :lol:

You're welcome...

 

I ASSUME the colors of the rectangle markings on the helmet to be blue and white as those were the colors of Corps troops and insignia...

 

Maybe they were red and white??? A color image should clear that up...
