M40 wintercamo, original?

Article about: Hi. Need some opinions about this lid. The helmet itself is ofc original but what do you think about the paint? Doesn't it look postwar? What do you think about the newspaper, was it common

    The newspapers that I have ever found inside helmets(which was a quite common and simple way for some extra shock absorbing) were all yellowed and fragile-from sweat,grease and who knows what all else. This one is snow white and looks like it just came off the paper boys newsstand in Munich. And, as everyone else has said, the white paint-if it is paint-definitely does not look right. Some one has made too much of an effort to dress this one up. And there's always a reason for that... William
