A wild guess stealthy.

 

Didn't the OP say he found 2 helmets?

 

I wonder what the other one could be?

That's a great helmet! Nice score!

 

Do you think the black was painted over stripe to subdue the color underneath the black. It looks like some greyish blue is peeking out from the edge on the up close photo.

Other units attached to the 1st ESB indeed used the blue invasion arc. I have a grouping for a soldier in the 595th MP Battalion that has the same blue arc on both helmet and liner but they were overpainted during the war.

Any ideas on what the "S" stands for; Salvage Diver maybe? Or could it be the #8? The back looks like it could be a fancy #8
