    I do agree that 170 is a bargain, no doubt about this. But that's a beauty of internet auctions that some times you have bargains or people pay ridiculous money for some crap. It did happen to me before when I purchased some extremely rare soviet documents, when seller didn't even had a clue what he was selling. I still strongly believe it's original one, even after spending some detailed look under the magnifying glass I just can't see any discrepancies in terms of stamp being re-stamped and rust being repainted. You can't really put a 100% judge by analising photo's and then calling it fake, unless you have a magic crystal which I am sure moaning minnie does

    Hello Baha

    I've done a little work using Paint Net sorry but this type of tool is not familiar to me .

    I do not claim to be an expert on the Soviet helmet but I have enough experience to recognize a stamp that has been modified.
    Furthermore liner and chinstrap are also postwar.
    In addition it is clear that the painting was diluted (in red rectangles) and partially covers the two letters.

    If you're not convinced, I encourage you to request opinion of Russian collectors will certainly enlighten you.

    dom your explanation makes sense ,so what we all thought was an ink stamp over rust was really ink stamp over original paint and then another coat of paint near to the stamps i see it now ,it is hard to judge from pics alone but its all we have to go on most of the time do you think this helmet had refitted liner post war but is genuine ww2 period issue?

    For me this helmet is in a configuration refurbished LMZ 1948 / 1950 .
