    Post war DDR shell. The metal rim is the "dead give-away". The totenkopf is the bait.

    Okay, thanks for answers.

    Kelly Hicks wrote this about the helmet i january this year.
    This helmet appears to be an original fiberhelm, but I think that the black paint might bee more recent than WWII.
    Also, the skull marking is more recently made, not old.


    What would be a fair price for this helmet?

    Regards

    Remember that this is a post war DDR shell, not a Third Reich period piece. Complete these would be worth less than $100, but in this condition, the value is much less - at least to me.

    I would be very very careful buying any SS fibre helmet. They require a massive leap of faith and/or written traceable provenance. As Jim says, this one has had the value more or less destroyed.

    Yes, looks like he said WW2 fiberhelm, but paint might be more recent than WW2.
    ...that is how I understand the text.
