    I honestly can't say but the paint not being broken around the two front split pins I find odd. It seems like all I have seen that were worn with thick applied paint that the rivets moved enough to still break the paint in those areas. From the looks of it the helmet was well worn so I find that odd since the pins seem to loosen with wear .

    Well thats another fine lid that has been ruined by a dodgy seller trying to boost the price. I just wish people would leave the helmets as the are found.

    This helmet needs a hands on, but it is likely that it has been pimped post war,though I could not say for certain.

    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I read an article about camouflage, but I'm still going with that its post-war, here's the article: "The various paints used to camouflage helmets were derived from a concentrated paste that was issued in 2 kg. and 20 kg. cans. This paste was introduced in 1943 and was manufactured in such a way that it could be thinned with water or gasoline and applied by brush or spray gun. When thinned with water, the paste proved to be relatively unstable under harsh conditions. Running or smearing of the paint, especially before it was completely dried, was common. As a result gasoline became the preferred thinning agent over water. In some cases even motor oil was used as a thinning agent."
