    The runic decal is an Italian post war replica. That decal is shown in the Kelly Hicks book, "SS Steel". n this helmet, it is also poorly applied, look at the cracks on the top of the decal, and it is applied over rust as well. The liner is a repro. Because the decal and liner are bad, I would be virtually certain that the Tricolor is bad as well. Can't comment on the chinstrap other than to say that from what the photos show, its age is not consistent with the "age" of the helmet. Jim G.

    John.............This one is a fake, but not all round bottoms are bad. The helmet in question is a complete fabrication, from tip to toe

    You are correct on all your info.Yes the tricolor is bad as well.Only a few of those helmets still are in collectors collection.

    All is bad on this one , the unpainted steel shell is the only thing original.

    The round bottom fake is a higher quality fake than this one and has more traits in synch with originals. This one has no traits in common with an original.

    I understand that the steel shell is original repainting? and aged?
