Looks like a Norwegian color and the liner band has been out so that alone would make me pass.
Looks like post war paint taken off with paint stripper to end up with a "mottled" effect. Did you remove the liner or are these sellers photos? In any case pins are replacements from another helmet IMO.

Hi, I agree with the gents above in that this is a post war over paint that has been "stripped" back. The liner has been messed with also, so all in all I would wait for a better helmet to come along. Leon.

Thanks guys, sellers pics. I'll accept the advice and pass.
