    It's been postwar repainted a few times. But is still a original shell I would expect. Fair buy

    The green looks too fresh to be 65+ years old

    Could be a Norwegian repaint, or one of the many european countries that reissued these after the war.....

    could be... i know for a fact there are only two coats of paint, grey and green dont forget the texture under the green. i know what you mean by the reissue though, i have an m40 finnish reissue.

    It's still a nice original shell. My M42 was a polish reissue with a similar colour, but that was stripped before it was repainted, whereas yours sems to have a "history" of repaints!!!!!
