Hi,

 

Does the painting on this helmet liner appear to be original from WWII?

 

Thanks,

Marcel

Hi marcel.
paintings looks genuine but you can never know. I saw a lot of paintings on ww2 helmet some more faded some less faded. It depends. Your one looks original but create a fake is really easy ,you just paint what you want and than you can use some sand paper to faded it. The only way to really know is buying the helmet directly from its owner. Another important thing to know is the painting meaning. Naturally there is the rank in the front of the helmet But the red one I don’t really know what it is. CD are maybe first letters of the name of the soldier but can even indicate anything else

The high gloss on the liner would lead me to believe it’s post WWII.  
 

Just my two cents,

The way the soldiers name and ASN is written in white along the inner rim is common to see on post war liners.
