Real or fake?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I've had two helmets that appear to be WWII M1's that were given to me in around 1976.  One was painted orange and has a smooth finish and has no markings anywhere on it - I panted it grey when I was a kid.  The other is a dark green with a speckling of sand that is part of the metal (not sand) with the number 34 framed by too small figures  - one looks like a flower and the other is like two half moons with a vertical line through them.  After extensive research on line, I still can't tell if they are real, reproductions or toys.  They are hard metal and non magnetic - not aluminum.  Rim seams are in the rear and both have swivel hooks on the sides.  I also have one liner that fits both helmets - just can't find any markings that match it - inside marking is a circle with DCK in side it.  Can you help me determine what these three items are?  I can send pictures if necessary.
