IMO it's completely repainted, and the wire is not original. The strap is bad, and the liner is very likely to be bad also IMO.
Bad fake only think real about it is the helmet itself
wire lasted longer that the helmet
Sometimes we don't get the answers we were hoping for ..... but there you go!
( unusual looped wire by the way??????? )

As all the others have said it has all the tell tail signs of a reworks helmet. If you compare these pictures to known good helmets and even camo helmets you will notice the subtle differences this one possesses. The bright orange rust is also a tell of forces wear.
Bad news for the helmet but hopefully some advice for future purchases.
Sorry,a very poor effort at a cammo.That wire is also a real bundle of laughs!!Here is a picture of another fake with similar wire to your example, Leon.
