It sold or was removed.

Unsold but no longer available. Maybe someone enlightened the seller.

Or drove them further underground.

Interesting story for a helmet likely not even in the theater yet when the unit disbanded.

If you read the description they aren’t sure where this helmet originated.

 

They claim it might be a FSSF or 509th helmet.

 

Their ID is based on the colors of the camo scheme.

 

So who knows what unit it is from.

 

The question to me is: is the paint period WW2?

The modern social security number leads me to believe it was painted up well after the war.

The camo scheme has not been artificially aged. Not saying it is 80 y.o. though.

Back in the day people would put their SS numbers on their belongings to help ID them in the event of theft.

I messaged the seller and the helmet sold.
