    imo - $200 for an overpainted shell with a repro liner - I rather get a nice original shell with some paint for less than that.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    I see that it is marked sold, but I would stay away from this one. There appears to be no rear liner split pin, the maker's ID and size don't match anything I've ever seen, the chin strap mounting seems to be in the location as it would be on an Austrian helmet. Just too much not right.
