Starnge colour on M42
At first, please do not mind the shield, the liner and all the oters, everithing is repro. Only the shell is original. At least the metal part of the shell....
So, my question is abut the light grey-green colour of the shell. It was covered by black, sombody has removed it, but you can see the dark paintiong in the scratches. The helmet came from Prague, so maybe it served at the fire brigade for a while. Under the black is the grey-green and it sticks very well on the surface. It seems to me there was not any green painting inside, there is just some black painting remais inside the shell, mostly you can see the steel inside.
Please let me know your opinion about of this grey-green colour. (is it poswar, is it original, what is it at all?)
Thank you for your answer in advance!

I'm gonna go out on a limb with postwar paint.
Is it some "officila" painting in your opinion or somebody just paint it?
Sorry, I am not able to type.... "official"
post war no doubt about it , matches the repro rivets perfectly.
The guy who made this probably never saw a real M42 before.
