Fabe, I believe it is Bundeswehr "Gelboliv" (Nato-oliv) vehicle and equipment colour, RAL 6014.
During there use in the BW these helmets would of been re painted from time to time in varying shades of the above colour.
Prost ! Steve.
"The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)
I believe it was a matt or flat finish OD, but what is on
there now is glossy and quite dark.........
a nice little bargain there ,i believe these m1a1's were manufactured either by VDN vereinigte deutsche nicklewerke ,SH for schuberth or PSL paul schulze ,lubeck and the 181 style liners were made by either hans romer or schuberth this liner was similar to the earlier liner apart from having plastic nape strap neck support a nice flectarn helmbezug (helmet cover) would complete the look or maybe a tarnnez (helmet net )over the shell ,regards james
