    From the lighting I'd say repaint, can you get pictures in natural light?

    Hi Andy, it has certainly been repainted. The colour is not right and too glossy.

    Early war helemts were a "grey/green" shade while later examples were more OD.

    The basic item itself is original, but as you said, lacks the pad to the crown.

    Cheers, Ade.
