By the look of it - Repro badge, repainted, questionable liner, can't tell about the shell and strap.
Fortune favors the brave 644th td
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.
I agree with above comments
All joking aside I did not know they have been faking them since the 80s. Crap that *****.
I will try to get my money back. Thanks for the info guys.
They were faking items even while the war was still raging!
Hi Joe, show your original again, re paint ,liner patina etc, nothing like a good one with good pictures
