    Hello Florian,

    Its an original shell and the shots of the interior paint on the rear skirt look OK but closeup and clear images of the camo, decal and chinstrap will be required for more thorough examination as I was not able to enlarge the ones uploaded.

    Definitely better higher rez photos are needed for the camo and decal...but if forced, I'm leaning to a thumbs down. Camo paint still on the edges but wear on the camo paint around the shell.

    But I really can't form a good opinion based on the photos.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    Liner, shell etc are original can't comment about decal and paint though.
    I think the last photo is most likely from a different helmet ( the one with T1236) otherwise this helmet would have 2 lot numbers, that wouldn't make a lotta sense

    Going to need nice clear (more) detailed shots of the camo and a nice clear close up of the decal.

    Better pics needed. The paint (inside & out) looks feldgrau...not Luft blue. At least on my monitor

    That last image appears to have ‘Artif’, or similar, stamped across it too...
    (Seller’s watermark, perhaps)?
    As stated, this is probably from another helmet entirely, so could be immaterial.

    It’s an unusual, slightly odd camo, but I agree with RealSteel that it doesn’t appear to be a Luftwaffe grey-blue.

    Very small chance it is a good one.
