I can't comment on authenticity but I can say WOOOOW... The only thing missing is the battle hardened veteran of the eastern front wearing it!!! It looks fantastic!!
its nice i do like it, it was posted on a different German award forum, and loads of people said it looked fine
Germany is within the EU, so no customs charges.
USA and Canada you will get charged. Customs fees are a bummer, but on a high ticket item like this it is something you are going to have to suffer. If you fudge on the declared value and it goes missing you will only be able to claim the declared value and you will take a massive loss.

Yes, as discussed on WAF a good K&Q. It originally came from Berliner Auktionshaus where it was sold for €6000 I think.
yeah so EU is fine,
yeah it was discussed on WAF, and he did get it from there
he said auction fee plus 15% buyer's premium of about 900 euro + 300 euro for shipping insurance + about $750 Canadian (about 525 euro) in duty fees
he says it cost him $8,500 about (£5,500) that what he wants back just wondering if its worth that?
but thinking now i would get hit with the import and shipping fees so its not
is Berliner Auktionshaus safe to buy from? do they check for fakes
Thanks Ade and Nick

Yes you could make a trip over here. The weather is fine now. No need for snow shoes or the likes.
I gotta get one of these also...If I didn't blow my budget on a couple of high priced helmets this year, I would love to own this!!! Good luck!
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
