    Question M40 helmet identification

    Hi all! Some time ago I acquired a steel helmet, postwar repainted. After the war it was sandblasted and repainted yellow by the Norwegians for use in "Industrivernet", and later horribly repainted by someone with green paint, which someone has also been attempting to remove... The liner metal seems to be original, but not the leather. Maybe the chinstrap? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this is an m40 helmet.
    Out of interest, I would like to know, what color was this helmet originally and what decals did it have? Is this possible to find out?
    (And if anyone has any ideas, should I finish removing the green paint that someone started to do, and how can I do this?)
    The markings seem to be the following: 142 and (E)T66. See the pictures attached. Thanks!
