    IMO - fake (modern) camo paint and artificially fake (modern) aged liner.

    Looks like paint was applied over an original pitted shell.

    John is 100% correct.

    Under the paint, you can see the rust.

    Liner is not period but paint work seems right.

    Modern paint for sure, it's painted over the rust pitting!....

    Hi, if I thought it was good I would happily "sail against the wind" but it is not I'm afraid. As the guys have quite rightly pointed out, the pitting from old rust/wear to the shell is underneath the cammo. A sure fire sign that this is a fake modern paint job, sorry. Leon.

    Liner band is a 1918 pads look new and the inside has been repainted with the liner in the helmet.
