DAK mask

Hi mates
here is a mask I bought in 1987.
Please what do you think about the container color? is this an original DAK color?
Ciao
Marco

Re: DAK mask

Ciao Marco,
i am not an expert on camo items and i hope i am mistaken here but i see paint over rust which is not a good sign.
I have marked a few areas.
As for the color not a DAK but more like a Sudfront.

Re: DAK mask

In my opinion it is an obvious fake - post war repaint.  There is pitting which has paint in it... a dead giveaway.
