    Just for interest, I do have a US 75mm in original, no doubt faded red paint color with markings for comparison. The brownish colored one next to it I have no idea if repainted, I assume a repaint as it has no painted markings. Both came from a retired US Army Artilleryman's huge collection ten years ago.
