    Postwar reissue ( look at the size of the chinstrap bales! ) with repro decals IMO

    Hi and welcome to the forum,i am sorry to say that in my opinion this is a fake.The decal in the first picture looks to have been placed over a large chip in the paint work(top left)also one side of the shield has a soft break where as the other is sharp,that's no good! Also i am not keen on the inner components,especially the chinstrap bales,they look to large for the chinstrap itself.Either the chinstrap has shrunk or it's a fake,or the bales are not of the correct type.

    If you can return it please do so. Total fabrication. SS helmets are the most faked german helmets out there.

    Hi. I'm still learning about these decals but looking at these pics the decals(both of them) appear to be set high up on the shell/too close to the vent holes and they don't seem to match the wear on the shell. The rust is thicker on the skirt and it appears that the rest of this shell may have been sanded although it is hard to tell from the pics.
