    The lugs alone would prove it is a bad one.

    yes I thought as much , though I did see a mention on the net of post WW1 manufacture which were of a larger size ,see German-Helmets.com
    This states 'So popular was the M1918 Ear Cut-Out, that in the mid to late 1920ís at least one German firm was contracted to reproduce the helmet in the larger 66cm shell size. This was intended to supplement the small number of World War I era shells in service and to aid in expanding the head sizes available from a maximum of 57cm to a much larger 59cm'
    Is this a fact or just internet BS ?

    I post one of these of WAF and everyone seem to agree that all originals should be marked ET64.

    What an insult to the helmet makers of the day... and to the soldiers who wore them.

    You may well be right that it is made in China but only if China has been exporting these since 1985 which I really doubt .
