    Default Fallschirmjaeger Helmet Real or Fake?

    Hi Guys, just joined the forum today, I have always wanted to collect german helmets, but have always been wary of doing so because of the amount of reproduction stuff available now. The fact i am a total beginner also and know nothing about helmets whatsoever means i stand a very good chance of being suckered into buying a fake. Just recently came into a small amount of money and decided i would love to have a Fallschirmjaeger helmet, ive always wanted one, but could never afford it...tracked this one down and the seller says its totally genuine (although he would say that). any comments on its authenticity would be greatly appreciated. Ive posted the photographs recieved and have had the helmet sent to me on approval, which is why i dearly need some advice quickly, so i can return it if it turns out to be a fake.

    Hi Jock, welcome to the forum!

    Sorry to say this helmet needs to be returned as soon as possible. It is a fake.

    Incorrect shape to the shell, incorrect markings, fake all round...

    Cheers, Ade.

    The old adage is more than often true when it comes to buying militaria....

    Post any future potential purchases here before you think about buying.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade, I guess so...wish i had found this forum before i accepted the helmet on approval.....would have saved me the cost of return postage.
