    Hi, I do not think it original paint. You can also see pitting under the paint. I think it is a modern repaint, don't you?? it looks fairly obvious to me. How much did you pay? if you do not mind telling.

    Regards, Steve

    thanks guys i kinda knew it was but just had to double check so when it gets here i can start to think about stripping it & Steve i paid 53 for it which to me for this type of helmet is a very good price

    Hi Nick, OK, sounds like a fair price. It will look better when you strip that whatever it is called of it. Good luck, post pics when you are done. Regards, Steve

    Hi Nick,
    That may make a nice helmet when you get that crap off it,
    It,s a shame that people put new paint on them as it detracts
    the real history of the piece. Are you going to restore it ? it would make a great display when and if you do. well done on that one.
