    Can you show the liner etc, the paint appears to be covering a lighter green which could mean a Norwegian repaint

    In that case its a real repainted shell with a "repro " ??? liner , whether the liner ring is original i couldnt say , but its your lid, if you decide to check if theres original paint underneath or it could still be a Norwegian repaint

    The paint lacks texture so I don't think there's any original paint under the current paint.

    There is no paint under the top layer as in parts it is worn so thin it is down to bare metal that has a very dark patina to it.
