M40 helmet - repaint?

Article about: I've been told this is a period paintjob (dont mind the ''decal''). I for 99% sure think it's a postwar job done over a rusty surface. What's your opinions?

    Very difficult to say as the pics are pretty poor. I'm not thrilled with it, but it could have a small chance. It's not a factory finish that's for sure.

    Hi ,I'm not to keen on this being an original paint finish although the pictures are pretty poor. It almost looks as though the naming has been painted around? Better images are really needed to be sure. Leon.

    Thanks for answers.

    Unfortunately I can't give better pics. The helmet (fortunately) isn't mine and the owner don't appreciate any negative feedback about it, so he dont want to take better pictures of it.
    It's not for sale anyways.

    IMO it looks like a repaint, you can see where the name is there's the field gray paint underneath what looks like the original paint.
