    Default Aged replica Fallschirmjäger helmet?

    Hi everyone
    This aged helmet has wrong lengthwise stitch liner within it. However the liner band and chinstrap looks like original. The decal looks not bad either. Should I disassemble it to check the detail inside? Please advise. Thanks a lot.

    This entire piece is a Chinese repro. The Adler is a well known fake, the shell is bad (if you have it in hand you should be able to perceive the light weight/thin gauge of the steel, and probably be able to squeeze the sides in if you are strong enough!), bad paint, and the liner, pads, band and strap are fake. It is fake top to bottom, inside and out. Jim G.
