Hard to say from such crappy pics, but being camoed underneath is not typical for these. Probably good that you did not buy it.
Whatever its just an opinion.
Thanks Jerry. I would never buy a German lid before posting here anyway
painted dome is indicative of a liner removal ( which is back-to-front BTW ) so I give it the thumbs down ......
" When you're chewing on life's gristle, don't grumble, give a whistle "
not for me.
Dont like the look of it, especially with that liner having been removed for repainting
A fellow collector suggest that it could have been painted and used by the Norwegian army post war, although it doesnt look like a "red dye" Norwegian liner".
Edit. Seller is located in Norway

This is a factory painted M35. If I remember correctly there were a whole bunch of these found in Prague a few years ago. I don't think anyone knows mich about these. They might be wartime, or they could be a postwar order. There is a general consensus that they are unissued.
