    Good People of the Forum.
    I picked this up years ago. I have always assumed the paint to be modern. I know next to nothing about German cammo. It was bought as a repro because I thought the white 58/59 on the rear skirt was from a props department. It is stamped as far as I can tell ET68, and the one on the rear skirt is almost illegible. There are small specs of orange/red paint visible with a loupe above the right ear as you would wear it. It did not cost that much if I remember. The liner is a lot less orange than it appears in the photos, and has some sort of waxy substance applied to it.
    Anyway, I would appreciate your thoughts.

    Best Regards,

    Andy

    Although its as messed with as possible, it still doesn't look half bad compared to some out there.... could be used as part of a display maybe, or stripped down re-painted in a way that appeals to you

    Thanks
