    i am going to say the decal is no good with it being a common round bottem fake. dont no why the decal on the left side of the helmet?. this would be a m33 but the air vents to this seem strange but might the angle of the image

    Bad decal, even to my untrained eyes, and I agree that it's a Bulgarian M51.

    Italian SS did not use a decal. This is a common fake. These foreign SS helmets, French, Free Indian, Italian, Croatian, and the Spanish Blue's are typically as fake as a porn stars boobs, a simple look into the SS decal section and some searching on the various fora would reveal this.

    This ones such a far fetched peice of fantasy,even George Lucas would struggle to find a home for it.If i were looking to house this one in a dark corner it would have to be in a galaxy very very far away!!

    Looks like an authentic M33 Italian helmet tarted up with a fake SS decal.

    The vents are the typical wartime flat variation. Bales are the square wartime type instead if the trapezoidal post war type. Chinstrap is wartime gregioverde leather vs. postwar canvas. Rear of the liner has the Z stitch.

    this is a first type m33 the air vents have a sharper hole then the later m33 had more of a rounded edge in the hole. and the join in the liner is no zig zag stich
