    This helmet belongs in the rubbish bin as my British colleagues say!

    It is a West German GSG9 shell with fake decals. The liner leather may be TR period but some of the early GSG9 pots had this style leather as well. The strap looks to me to be definitely post war. Probably put together for a reenactor.
