    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie

    I see no problem. Looks original to me. Just a printing offset seen occasionally.

    Looks like a nice example.

    Do you have it in hand? How do the split pins look? Overall the liner matches the condition of the shell (albeit with some potential blood stains) but I see two flat and one rounded liner pin.

    I'll defer to others on this.

    No I don't have it. These are the only pics that I have to go on. What I know for sure is that it is very pretty... Minus the blood..

    LoL...I think it is all fine. I just want a second opinion on that rear pin.

    Lovely looking helmet. In the Ken & Anders book I noticed some other luftwaffe decals with similar print offset.
    For what it is worth my M35 luftwaffe lid also has mismatched split pins.
    If it were me I'd snap this up.

    Having a wartime helmet with one different pin or missing one washer unless obvious post war tampering took place is totally acceptable. I see it often. Pins were left over, unused from M35 models & were often installed into M40 helmets. Same with a missing washer...it happened even in pre war M35 helmets. If it's missing two or all washers, then that's something to address
