M 1918 cut out helmet ?

Article about: I know there are lots of fakes of these and no doubt this is one but would appreciate some expert opinions . The lugs seem to be the 66 type which is a bad start !

    Ludwig Baer wrote that interwar commercial M18 ear cut outs were produced, and I think you are right that he said they were in a size 66. I think he had a picture of one in the 3 volume German language treatise, I just can't my copy of it at the moment. I have never seen a real one of those in over 50 years of collecting, but the one in the picture in Baer's book certainly looked good. If I recall correctly, it also had the head of a chin strap rivet on the exterior, at or near the break between the apron and the dome, not unlike the later so called Himmler style helmets. If I can find the book I will post the picture on this thread later today. Regarding WWI vintage ear cut outs, ALL were ET 64's, with stepped lugs. Jim G.

    These out of proportion horrors are also being made in India.
