My HD Camera shows the original (Factory applied Apple Green Paint under the Texture). Faint batch number but can't make out makers mark. A Fellow eBayer opined that it was probably a clk66 or hpk66 who were noted for applying weak maker markings. This is an honest combat worn helmet with a lot of character.
