    Yes, and well worn with that color. The matte paint on the top has been applied thinly but with a rather heavy brush. The helm is also black on the inside looks sprayed. Stamps OSS 1, 1939 and 50.

    White E stamp on the inside over the paint.

    No worries, the liner looks South African in style but they used a felt pad,where as yours looks leather or vinyl, not seen anything like this before....very interesting!!

    Its vinyl, has a very distinct smell to it too! What does the OSS 1 stamp mean? And the E?
