    Looks like an artificially aged liner, in fact im not happy with the whole helmet, chin straps suspect, the liner is distorted which appears to be a fairly common trait with the fakes that are being reproduced, how much is being asked for this lid, i may be proved wrong but i dont like it

    This really riles me, and although this person may not be a learned collector, common sense should make you wary and inspection would have shown some danger signs, its supposed to be a 70yr old helmet, but i must also blame in part the auction house, i would expect as here that they have some person on site or visiting that would flag up these obvious fakes and it seems to me that the only motivation involved is making a fast buck, i only hope that someone will later view this helmet and give a true assessment and the buyer can recoup his money

    The problem with auction houses ,they do not really have experts in militaria.I have seen so many fakes at auction house.but they are selling them has real.

    Auction house sales go by auction house rules, no returns and cash on the barrel, you better know your stuff if bidding at auction on German militaria.

    Poor bastard is now out of a lot of money - but that said: 750 is nothing compared to the price of a REAL FJ.....if he knew the value behind these helmets - he should have known what he was getting was NOT a good helmet.
