Hello and welcome to the forum!
You will need to post better close up and clear photos before anyone will be able to tell you if it is authentic or not. Straight on clear photos of the decal and any maker's stamps as well as photos of the liner and inside of the helmet would help immensly.

Thanks Ralph, yes I understand more photos the better and close up but unfortunately I don't own the helmet so am trying to get some more as we speak.
Will get some photos of my little but growing collection up soon.
My advice for collecting german helmets is avoid anything SS, way too many fakes and over priced, even the real ones from the top dealers are 3k and up, yet some of the best long time collectors get fooled by some of these, a nice single decal heer or luftwaffe helmet would be the way to go, most are real and reasonably priced 400 and up, as always post here before buying,
Thanks maximus I think that's what I'm going to do and hopefully can get a half decent genuine one, appreciate the comments and once again apologise for the bad pics.
No problem gooner I remember looking for my first, if you want or need some good websites of solid dealers let us know, once in awhile you can get a good deal.
Prices have gone down since a couple of years but will remain strong for SS.
It's a good time to buy one now.
Hi Gooner, I cannot tell you if this one is any good from this image and if that is all the seller will send you, then my advice would be to leave it well alone. Leon.
