HELMET – US CAMO 1ST DIVISION TRENCH ART: THIS HELMET WITH FULL  LINER AND CS (EXC) IS CAMOED IN WHAT WE CALL THE “SHIP’S SHARD” PATTERN (USED TO CAMO SHIPS) IN
SHARP ANGLED PANELS OF DARK BROWN, YELLOW OCHER AND GREEN WITH NO BLACK LINE SEPARARTIONS. ON THE FRONT IS THE 1ST DIVISION EMBLEM OF A SHIELD PANEL WITH A RED “1” ON THE NATURAL OD COLOR OF THE HELMET. ON THE BACK IS AN AMERICAN EAGLE IN BLACK, ALL EXC. WE SOLD THIS OUT OF OUR COLLECTION IN THE 1990’S. IT CAME OUT OF THE BILL HUKELL COLLECTION IN HARRISBURG WHICH WE PURCHASED IN 1983 (ABOUT 300 PAINTED HELMETS) WHICH STARTED MY COLLECTING PAINTED HELMETS. FOR SOME REASON FIRST DIVISION CAMO HELMETS ARE RATHER RARE. THIS WAS THE ONLY ONE IN OUR COLLECTION. ONLY MARKINGS I CAN FIND ARE THE OWNER’S INITIALS “JC” SCRATCHED UNDER THE BRIM.
