Need help! Cheap SS helmet full of holes genuine?

Article about: There's nothing wrong with relic helmets, 5 of my 6 lids are ground dug. To have this collection as non relic would have set me back easily \\$15000 I reckon so for the collector on a budget,

    Nice helmet and a good call not to remove the filler. It will not be possible to remove it without further damage. No it's not cool to use filler on such a helmet.

    That is well said Panzer 3. That is mainly why i love relics and digging them. I know where they have been. There is also something else about them i can't really explain.

    I have also heard bad things about UKM. Was it not this site that had the helmet with the 'SS2' decal on it? Gave me a chuckle.

    Maybe It's the questions you ask yourself whilst holding a relic in your hands.What if?,could it have been?,I wonder if?
    I feel relics are a personal thing,conects you with a time,place,person(sometimes).
    Good on ya Lars
