Chris,

Is there some significance to the color of the carrying can? Is this painted over Feldgrau or is it the original paint finish? I like the color of that helmet in the picture. I have one that color too. Is this lighter color particular to a certain manufacturer or was that just an earlier color?

Hi,

it seems the mask tin was always that colour, no trace of green unberneath it.

As for the helmet color, the seller said this is the really, really early colour, and they were darker green later in the war.
