    Default Afrika Korps helmet - good or bad

    Picked this up a few months ago. What is your opinion of it, seems authentic to me but my track record is not that great lately.

    I agree. Paint is not even close and the palm tree decal is a total fantasy item as helmet insignia.

    I absolutely hate seeing decent, hard working people be swindled. It's infuriating!
    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie

    I'm not adding anything until I weed all the fakes from my collection.

    For the record, there are a number things that are wrong with this helmet that tell us at a glance it is fake. The air vent size and shape is odd, the crimped edge is rough, the decals are poorly applied, the liner shows signs of being artificially aged, the stamps are wrong for this type of helmet among other warning signs. Do run things by the forum before purchasing. Hope your next purchase is a better one. NH
