    Just buy a real shell they can still be brought fairly cheap and a lot of the copies are badly made

    Well I need a 68 shell and you don't find those cheap. At least I haven't been able to.

    on a French site we saw one SS helmet, found in farm.....totally fake, with a 3 letters code.
    The best Militaria forum in France is here : http://deutsch-militaria.forumactif.us/

    Question

    I used to buy helmets from a company in Germany to sell to WW 2 reenactors. They were good repros, but not made of balistik steel.
    There was also someone in the Czech republik who made repros.
    Not sure if either one is still around.
    There has also been repros coming out of china and/or japan.
    I'm sure that there is no one making military standard/grade helmets. There is no market for them.

    Appreciate the replies, everyone. Thanks. Think I'll just bite the bullet and get a decent 68 shell then.
