From the pictures supplied it looks as though it could be OK. I would think it would be difficult - but not impossible, to replicate this. But in hand it might look different again! I would ask for better pictures of the inside and out!
Books published to date... 'Belfast Diaries: A Gunner In Northern Ireland'... 'A Tough Nut To Crack - Andersonstown'... 'An Accrington Pal: The Diaries of Pte Jack Smallshaw, September 1914 To March 1919'.
Pictures a blurry and it's hard to see but it looks a bit like spray paint but it could be ok, better pictures would be great.
Even from those pics its shows typical fake traits sorry not for me.
How can you tell that the originals?winter camo may be the toothpaste,lime ant more....
I think that the true colors are painted anew.why white over color that rust?
from under the white paint....I think things taken helmet excavated and re-painted with white paint
sory my english bad
thank you for your answers
so the problem is that there is rust under the white paint? it should mean that the helmet was a rusty relic repainted in white?
white wash was water based so you would expect a rusty patina no? ,to be honest i would walk away and save your money the red flag for me is the liner pin area is painted up to the hole this should show a ring of original paint where field applied over a complete helmet
it seems on the first picture that in the front of the helmet the rust is over the paint ?
and what are the typical fake traits?
