    Default reject helmet used for Luftschutz

    Hey Folks,

    I've the chance to buy wonderfull helmets for a very good price.
    Ok honestly, I put the sarcasm off. The seller showed my a lot of different helmets and I think the Luftschutz could be something real.

    This leads my to the question, if the Luftschutz is really a good one? I don't know the rejected helmets so good to be shure after looking at the rest. I know the pictures aren't the best ever made but it would be great if someone has an opinion for me.

    cheers

    Not be best pictures, but all the helmets could be OK, but the decals are suspect on all including the LS helm.

    Both liners on the last 2 pictures look post war repros as does the chinstrap. Can't tell anything about the LS due to poor pic quality. Can't comment on decals due to poor pic quality but the paint & texture on the police M35 looks incorrect for a period painted & decaled M35 helmet. Looks to me like a restored "Relic" with fake police decals

    The eagle on the Luft M40 "might" be original, but better pics are needed

    Good day BlackCat1982,
    thanks to your reply to my post. In my opinion, the helmets are all originals but liner, chin straps, colours and decals are replaced. The only one who seems to be good for me is the LS. I need to check if I lost quality during upload.
    Thanks mate

    Good day real steel,

    thanks a lot for your answear to all four helmets. I'll check if I'm able to get better pictures to post them here. The police helmet has a rough surface structure. I don't think that police helmets has been masked. In my opinion its a repainted helmet. The sand coloured helmet seems not to work by the time. When this colour started, the "sniper targets" where gone as far as I'm informed. The eagle has strange scratches around his head. Every helmet should cost around 200€.
    Chin straps and liners are nothing at all.

    Thanks mate

    There is only one decent original helmet in that bunch and that is the LS helmet. But better photos are needed to confirm.
    The Luftwaffe is a maybe but with the scratch marks it could have a restored decal.
    The rest is junk.

    Hi Folks,
    Thanks for your help. A friend of mine has had the chance to see all helmets today and as expected, no one was good. Thanks for supporting me!
