The helmet is a dug up "restored" helmet. I am 100% sure of that. Take it from a East Front digger I have seen a few dug up helmets by now.
Absolutely and it's value is zero as a collectible in this form.
I will just show our member what i mean and give him a chance for learning something. I'm not doing out arrogance or anything like that. This helmet was so obvious it's a shame he does not know how to tell the difference. After all that's part of what the forum is about.
