    Default M42 SS wintercamo

    Hi.
    What do you think about this helmet? Is the decal, liner etc. original? Do you think i should buy it?
    It's currently on tradera.se for sale.

    Save your money. It's a modern reproduction + a fake chin strap AND liner. If you ever get to see a real white camo, the finish looks nothing like the one shown. After 65 years it goes brown, not bright white. Besides the decal is a known fake.

    Even though I'm in no way an expert I really dont like this one. However this is just my gut feeling from looking at it, but I have been wrong before

    EDIT: Beat me to it John

    Thanks

    Yeah thats what I thought too. It doesnt look "right". Always good to hear your opinions.

    Here is another helmet (not wintercamo) that is for sale at tradera. Atleast it isnt fake right? But is it worth the money?

    Don't forget, it's only my opinion, but I guess most would agree

    This one looks a nice helmet, with the added bonus of maybe a manoeuvre band, or bread bag strap being attached. You never gave a price, but I would imagine somewhere around 175-250 UK£ ? I wouldn't have a problem with that one, liner's a bit dry, no chin strap, so it devalues a bit. But it looks honest enough

    Okey yeah it looks like a nice helmet. Dont know the price yet, because its an auction. But around 200-250 UK£ atleast. Do you think that the line might been from googles:P?

    He doesnt say it's fake one, but i guess he know that it is fake .
    Don't know the price yet , since it's auction.
    Here is the link to the helmet: Tysk WWII Waffen-SS Stålhjälm M42 på Tradera. Hjälmar | Militära

    If he didnt say its a repro,then he is trying to deceive,hes no better than someone who steals a wallet full of money.
