    By the look of it - Repro badge, repainted, questionable liner, can't tell about the shell and strap.

    Well I know the helmet has been in a local militaria shop since 1985 that I go to all the time. It was part of the shop owners collection. How do you know its a Repro badge? Yes it does have layers of paint done by brush.

    Study a known real one and it will quickly become apparent.

    All joking aside I did not know they have been faking them since the 80s. Crap that *****.
