Fallschirmjägerhelmet?

Article about: What are the first thoughts on this FJ-helmet? I can not see a good clear serialnumber, but I think it's there.

    So, zigzag stitching always indicates a fake one?

    Where the rim is folded over, there is a slight groove running parallel in it where the rolling tool left a mark, fakes do NOT have this.
    Someone will post a photo showing this - once you know what it looks like it is obvious.

    For the main seam in the liner on a FJ helmet, YES.

    I found a photo - but in doing so I also read that some fake shells have this too these days ...... so that is No longer a definitive checking point and THATS why I do not have a M38 in my collection!!!

    Cheers, Dan

    Thx Dan. Is it the line that I see that's following the rim that is the toolmark then?

    Is this the toolmark that we're talking about?
