    As there seems to be no original textured paint underneath, most likely repainted post war.
    But by whom?

    It is original, but likely repainted either post-war or near the end as a souvenir or the original soldier did it.

    It seem to be a MK3
    A picture of the liner would help alot
    I need to see its interiorcolour too
    Like german Camos, you cant say it to 100%
    Ive seen MK2 brodies and vehicles with this camo on pictures from the 8th army
    The MK3 was too late introduced for this ära
    (1940-43) introduction MK3(second half of 1943)

    Default The Liner

    I am the owner of the helmet and the liner and interior painting is also kind of strange.
    while removing the liner which looked post war to me i discovered a stamp (BMB 1944 and D.M.C 1944 S), see the pictures!

    Liner looks to be a reproduction, or post war European made one.
    Paint inside like the outside, has been repainted post war.
