    From your pics...the liner looks postwar including the straps. Any discernible markings on inner shell ? to me....from these pics It looks like someone tried very hard to age a complete repro M38. Until better pics are provided of the decal, inner shell rolled ridge & any markings such as ET 66-68 on the side & a 3 or 4 digit # sequence on the inner rear skirt, I would not touch it. Get better pics of shell

    Hello Cwrenn. I bet the price is scary. It may be an original shell? But I think it's been heavily refurbished. Bright red (new) rust against relatively good condition paint? Paint in the heavy old rust pits of the shell. And a conveniently out of focus Adler. To me looks fishy? Best regards.

    He advertised on a local Craigslist in Charlotte, NC but I later found out he is in Poland. Thank you for all your help! I truly appreciate it.

    Okay Dan
    Third time I ask....What, who, where is a "Pawel Nowack" ? You guys got my curiosity going. Is it a person, place, or thing ?

    Not fair to keep me in the dark. What If I end up buying a fake helmet from this "entity" ? I can blame you guys for not telling me ?

    Well David,
    He / it / them were about when I joined the forum in 2009. At first people said he was a scammer that tried to sell BOTH fake and real helmets ( that weren't his ) and got money wire transfers, refusing Paypal and was able to walk off with peoples money into the ether, never to be seen again until he popped up in another country as a different Ebay seller etc... but still peddling the same old scam. Whether it is one person or a host or a syndicate, the name has almost taken on PHANTOM-like " ghost who walks" status as he / they / it has never been taken down in more than a decade of ripping people off. Seems almost everyone in the northern Hemisphere has crossed paths with "Pawel".

    Would he be the reason "watermarks" are placed on many high end items ? He was posting pics of others helmets off forums & saying they were his & trying to sell them ?

    Gee Dan...What's wrong with that ? (LOL)

    Okay...a creep. Thanks, D
