    I once owned a Dutch helmet with a Luftwaffe eagle on it. It was 100% correct as I picked it up in the early 1960's. They do exist. There is not enough left of the decal on your helmet for me to make a judgement on it.

    Good to know...I tried to get better detail of what was left of the decal, but my camera wouldn't cooperate.. Thanks again for the response...Mike

    If you ever have a chance to see"Collectors Guide German Relics Supplement 2-Headgear" published in 1968 by Stan Bozich, the helmet is pictured on page 48. There is also a reissued Dutch Luftschutz helmet.

    The helmet looks fine, but the Heer decal is definitely bad. Poor detail in the chest feathers, wing, and beak give it away.
