Looks like someone painted it with mustard. That's just fugly.
The edge is definitely sanded instead of worn. Bad sign.
Now that is a real shame that some clown slapped that horrid paint on the outside of the shell as the rest looks quite nice. Leon.

Your right Leon, he's a bigger clown for asking 800 for it!
Original nice helmet but you might try to carefully strip off that fake yellow type paint and have a nice WW1 helmet. timothy
It could be possible to take off the fake paint but it looks like the guy stripped what was left of the original paint underneath and sanded it. Shame
