Hi there, this is a Czech rework IMO. The washers behind the smaller liner rivet heads, the liner/chinstrap and the black repaint are indicators. Many German lids were re-used postwar by various nations, for civil defence or civic duties like fire fighting.

Got to agree, posts Czech all the way.
I agree with my learned friends - I have one too ( a M35 ) that some propeller head painted ordnance tan ........ now its a DAK for dummies!!!!
I actually think yours is great - all original post war Czech - and so many get stuffed up trying to be wartime that soon there will be none left in their original configuration.
Enjoy it for what it is!
