    Original sun helmet but I don't like the shadow around the shields - I think it has been "SS pimped".

    Agree with Dan, looks like they took the old shields off and put those on.

    One which needs to be in hand; the shadows could be "real" shadows in my opinion.

    True - but hard to figure how the shadow could be on both sides of the shield in the same photo?

    Without direct provenance I would pass.

    It appears the images where taken in a shadow box. If this is so, there's probably a light source from the left, right and above resulting in the effect we see here, i.e: the shadows on both sides of the shields. I've actually produced similar images when using my shadow box to photograph items from the collection.
    I do agree though, these are easy to create and without direct providence this wouldn't be a item for me.

    In the overhead shot there appears to be gaps between shields and helmet which suggests they have not been together for circa 70 years.

    Whatever its just an opinion.
