    Hi Ade and everyone
    have been offerred this one, it appears to have the tool mark on the edge of the rim, that seems to be a positive start, except the decals dont sit right with me, especially the tri colour shield. Have not been sent a photo of the makers mark or batch number. Do reproduction makers also place the tool mark on the rim nowadays.
    Thoughts please.
    regards
    AL

    Hi Al, one look tells me it is all bad. Incorrect shape overall shape, badly done liner, never mind the decals, etc.

    The tool mark around the rim is actually incorrectly done.

    Run away!

    Cheers, Ade.

    +1 on that, definitely a bogus example.

    Ww2germanhelmets has a few para helmets if you are serious about picking one up. Ade said it all for this one.

    thanks, will have a look there. Looking for one that I can actually afford, or have reasonable aspirations of affording.
    I seem to be great at at finding all the "imposters"

    If that had been real, would have been for sale for thousands, usually the imposters are alot cheaper !!!

    I am hoping for one in the woodwork that I can get a decent deal on. Same with the SS helmet I am hoping to find in the cracks. Don't give up. They are still out there...I hope!

    Hi Al, take at look at some of these here, all nice originals. I realise these are far from cheap. But study the pics.

    FJ helmets have never been cheap and bargains are really found. I paid £1,200 for mine at least 12 years ago now.....

    Cheers, Ade.

    I'd love to find one for that price , Ade. I'm not expecting to though. But sometimes you get lucky.
