    Has it been repainted black over black.

    It has clearly been repainted, though from the pics I can't see the other colour. Look at the lugs and the area around the liner bolt for signs of the overpaint IMO.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    thanks jerry, i cant see any signs of another colour, usually as you know it is easy to spot.
    I wonder why it was repainted. Its a shame.

    Hi Ed, definitely had a re-paint, most probably post war. As Jerry mentioned the "scaring" where the original larger bolt was is a big give away. Leon.

    The dead give away is the remnants of the original paint overpainted on the rim above the makers stamp.But hey its still a 1940 MkII,but as said a shame its been messed with
