Camo colors don't look right to me, wear looks questionable too. Outdoor pics on a sunny day might help.

Not one i would buy. Fake straps, a not fitting gas mask and a heavily rusted filter in discrepance to the clean outside of the can. Everything stinks here.

Straps are real ( seen already this kind of straps with rubberize/impregnated cloth ending ), but IMO camo job is not.
Overall gasmask, filter and canister ( or at least filter alone) are put together

Bad to the bone camo. Only straps are real.

A good example of bad camo. Obviously painted over rust and then scratched off with a brush or other tool, using a liquid paint stripper to remove the main areas.

What do you think how a 1942 gasmask look after 2 Years in the field and then painted over?

Bingo! Brillo pad, in my opinion.
