    This double decal SS helmet is a complete fake as was said earlier. It is actually a postwar shell made by Linnemann & Schnetzer (see round logo next to figure 6 in rear skirt) for Police and Bundes Grenzschutz (BGS) use. Stay clear!

    Cheers,
    Emile
    Thanks for the info on the round stamp. I noticed it in the picture, and knew the helmet was post war west german, but since I don't have any post war german helmets in my collection I don't know anything about the manufacturers, etc. Thanks again for the information. Jim G.

    Hi.

    It's currently on tradera.se , for sale.

    Real shell, post war czech rework. The paint is post war czech, the liner post war czech police/civic, and obvious fake SS decals. I would be surprised if the seller wants people to believe that it is a period black DD SS, unless he doesn't know anything about helmets, but if he knows it is a reproduction, he should state that in the description so a novice buyer doesn't get burned. Just my opinion. Jim G.

    Yeah hate when they doesnt say its repro, fake etc on the ad (on tradera). I knew it was a fake one, but its easy to get fooled when you are a novice.

    My advice, for what its worth, is to avoid that site, as all that I have seen from it on this forum appears to be garbage. Jim G.

    hello,
    A very good advice from Jim.....
    My advice : buy some documentation & books before helmets...especially if WSS or Fallschirmäger....and try to handle a few good ones to see how it should be...paint, smell, decal(s)..etc.....
    Thanks
