Looks cleaned. Not one for me. Liner looks ok though.
Yep, too much cleaning going on for me as well

Are you buying it and if so what is the asking price? When condition is not the best the price is everything. Marty

Thank you very much for your evaluations! The helmet has been offered at an auction and I was not sure about bidding. At the moment it's about 100 Euro.
With best wishes
From the green paint (well, what remains of it) i would say it was issued to Norway postwar, although the liner does look pretty good and does not looked to have been dyed brown which is common on post war Norwegian army issue German helmets.
