WW1 M1917 helmet color

Recommended Posts

I was looking for some opinions on coloring for WWI era US M1917 helmets. I have a few shells I'd like to use for re-enacting and I'm unsure of the color to paint them. I've looked at a bunch or original photos and it seems like there are tons of color variants from brown to khaki to OD green.
