    Look at this helmet cover being sold on Fleabay at this moment, going over 1300 euros and stil going.
    Who would pay this kind of money without seeing the item in hand, not alone bidding on it with these pictures!
    It just doesn't look right to me, to me it seems somebody has aged a repro helmet cover.

    Yes it looks artificially aged to me. If not, it has definately not seen combat.

    This isn't SS it's a Heer splinter pattern !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I dont agree, i think its a fake, the damage seen is strange, it appears that there is no discolouration in the damaged threads which could mean that the damage is recent, therefore if recent why would anyone damage an original piece, the actual cloth appears too clean for a wartime period piece and the damage looks intentional and not insect or natural wear and tear
