    Default M38 Helmet authentication

    Hello, first entry to this forum area. I tried to be better than stupid novice just asking real or not. Did some research first in this forum, cool stuff.
    I wonder did i do my homework well.
    My dad bought this helmet years ago, and i must deal with it. Helmet is dusty in pictures.

    My remarks
    -ET68 and helmet leather size markings match
    -Liner buttons looks good if im correct.
    -There is imprint inside fold to the rim, partially seen here and there. Best seen in forehead area
    -Chinstrap is fake, yes?
    -Chickenwire is not period made I think. Looks cool but it collects dust, should remove it.

    Thanks for posting - imo it is an aged reproduction - nice display piece
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Dayum. I thought helmet is real and all other is fake. Well I feared worst.
    Usually I start to get headache when I start wondering authentication of some item. Good thing I dont collect german stuff too much. It has too much minefiels to fall on.
