    That's too bad. Your photos show it for what it is paint color wise. But still for $100 you paid for it its still a good deal IMO. I'd remove the exterior layer of paint. It's still a nice late war helmet. The lack of smell from the liner is good, if it smelled like leather it would be a bad sign.

    I have another black painted helmet in an almost identical color, it is an M35. Both helmets appear to have at least one layer of paint under their black overpaint. I am sure the QVL has no decal, but the M35 might have a chance. I would not remove the paint myself. The liners are dated 1944 for the M35 and 194_ on the QVL. The liners are both stamped as well:

    I had a helmet that was overpainted that Bill Maertz removed years ago. He does masterful work and isn't expensive.
