    The palm tree and hakenkruez decal is a 1970's invention.....no such decal existed. Also the helmet seems to have been airbrushed with a hobby type airbrush....the paint seems to uniform and thin, and has had some sort of wash added to it to age it up....all in all this is a pure post war fantasy piece...

    Politely decline the offer and kick the seller in the fork while you're at it.

    I have much admiration for a new collector whom, if he or she is unsure about an item offered for purchase, asks questions and seeks advice BEFORE buying.

    Kudos to you, dear colleague...

    Hello, that helmet truly stinks, I have got to say that it is possibly the worst fake/fantasy lid I have ever seen. At least you did not buy it! Leon.
