    Hi all! what do you think about this Paratrooper helmet? it's original? the shell itself looks like a paratrooper one, but the paint and the decal... don't, what do you think? it's a good helmet, original shell post war paint? or what it is?

    I don't have good feelings about this one. The chinstrap isn't airborne and the D bail isn't rusted as the helmet brim.
    I would pass on it.

    Thank you very much Steve, so i assume that the insignia on the sides and the sergeant marks should be fake too?

    yes its a bad one, don't buy.
    as steve says, at a glance the bail is made of stainless steel, wrong material.
    a messed with helmet that looks like its been repainted a few times before someone has added the insignia, not for me.
