    Hi Anon,

    It’s an original M16 German Helmet shell. More hi res pictures would be great but from what I can see the paint does look period. Nothing looks contrived or aimed to deceive. No paint over the spot where the rear pin sat which is good.The colours too are a correct mix of ochre and has a good patina.

    I like it but if you can get better pics even better.

    Post some photos if you get it.

    I think the paintwork is good along with the lid, it has the right shades and the external layer of grime imply it’s been sat on a shelf for a long time too. It has none of the freshness of a newly painted copy. Shame the liner is missing.

    Unfortunately it sold before the OP could purchase it but hopefully when another comes up he’ll have a little more confidence in appraising WW1 camo paint jobs.
