    Looks to have been artificially aged/dyed to me, chinstrap is a repop too.

    Value of a fake is a relative thing. To me they hold no value at all as I put them in the closet of shame. Some people do collect even fakes so they must have some value to some.

    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.

    You would be better spending $25 on membership than anything on it, unless you really want a badly messed with relic in your collection.


    I wonder how many more posts will be wasted on this, tempted to just close it now.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Hello again,

    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.

    This can save you money and time friend
