leave it, bad paint , bad decal , ...
Mmmm... About the paint it could be the combined effect of paint and oxydation, plus a bad light taking the picture (look at the inside); the decal bothers me, because doesn't seem a Quist.

When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
Hi, well I do not particularly like the decal from these poor pictures either, but the liner also looks like it may be a scrubbed/washed Norwegian one. Also the naming in the skirt appears to be on top of areas of existing rust. In in all not one I would pursue. Leon.

Thanks to you all gentlemen; with your imputs in mind, I think i'll take a close look at this helmet, which is not too far from my town.
Paint looks more convincing than the decal, but neither look good to be honest.
Not sure about the liner from these pics, but with decal and paint issues, it's not a
hard decision to leave it with the seller.
