Medical Helmet Liner Paint

Hello all! I recently picked up a helmet and when I pulled the liner out I it was painted with the rank and medical crosses. I do not collect helmets and am not very knowledgeable about them. I do know that the sweat band is not original to the liner. I was wondering if this paint is real. If so, when is it from and what kind of value would this liner have. Please let me know if additional pictures are needed. Thanks in advance!!!

Maybe it is for a South Korean Army Private from the mid 50s into the 60s???

IMO the insignia has good wear to it, and I’d agree it could well date to the 1950’s/1960’s as patches noted.

 

My eyes might be playing tricks on me but is the webbing the standard P55 style? The material looks somewhat different to me.

 

Nice liner nonetheless,

I'd think it's real, but yes some foreign use and possible manufacturer.  any stamping in the crown area of the liner?

Yes, now I am almost certain it is South Korean. Thanks for the information!

I recently sold the liner and do not have it anymore. So I am unsure. I have a lot to learn about helmets! Thanks for the information!

As stated before, I sold the liner but still have some of the pictures from the listing. This is the only close up I have of marking on the liner
