Hi,i cannot tell from these pictures if the shell is original,but i do not like the "cammo" job one bit,looks to have been sponged onto the helmet.
Looking for WWII U.S. dog tags
Note the rim and overall shape.

Ade is spot on, the rim is a great indicator for originality of a Fallschirmjager shell. The angles at the corners of the brow are wrong, and the rolled rim does not have the little telltale line on it from the ET tooling.
