    Well you have to remember normal people painted these on, so theres a huge variant in how they look..for me i would need it in hand, but yours doesnt strike me immediately as fake as most of the fakes out there (this is a heavily faked helmet btw).. The 7th Armoured Division is in fact British not Australian and your helmet is British so thats ok
