Why do you think it is luftwaffe? .. inside looks more field grey to me in these photos.
maybe a field done overpaint with the tricolour peeking through.

Can you ask for pics of the side of the helmet
Paint texture and patina look odd on this one,.......something is amiss.
Hi Steve, welcome to the forum!
The basic helmet itself is original, but the exterior has been messed with. Look at the bright steel around the air vent and liner pin holes. Not one for your collection.
