M42 SS SD Helmet - is it good?

Article about: Hello all, Does this M42 single decal Waffen SS helmet stand a chance? I would greatly appreciate any input/opinions from our ss helmet gurus. If it turns out to be a genuine article I plan

    Hi, you have it all already but I will just add my agreement that this is not an original SS helmet. Leon.

    Thank you all for your input and the valuable information. I haven't really collected German helmets up to this point but came across this one at a local militaria fair/swapmeet close to where I live. It's usually mainly medals, badges, etc, so I was really surprised when I saw this and it really piqued my interest. The seller admitted that he didn't know a lot about WW2 helmets (as he predominantly specialises in medals) and that he was selling it on behalf of an elderly gentleman who has decided to sell off his collection. He was asking $3650 for it but did say that the price was negotiable.

    Anyhow, he had no objections to me taking a few photos, doing some research and getting back to him if I was still interested. And I'm very glad that I did! Unfortunately the market for these things here in Australia is very small with a limited number of genuine pieces available to collectors, hence when something like this pops up every so often one gets excited even though the possibility of it being genuine is likely to be very remote.

    Again many thanks for your help and assistance!
