No thank you.
Looking for militaria from 38. Batterie, Heeres Küsten Artillerie Regiment 977, also from 31, 32 and 36. Batterie.
Very bad. Fake decal and chinstrap, maybe fake liner and paint.
It is always a very bad sign when the seller emails you blurry pictures like the one of the decal. How much does the seller want for it, a couple of 100 bucks? Note that SS helmets in good shapes normally start around 5k at least.
Shell might be original though but I would pass and find a better and honest one if I were you.
Looks like a reenactors copy....real helmet shell, repro the rest!!
As a Ex servicemen with PTSD, I see this quote in a different context
"Enjoy the war, as the peace will be unbearable"
Yeah I sous say reenactors copy as well, good shell, fake rest
Looks like the fake champagne decal but blurry enough to not give it a firm opinion on that end. Considering the fake strap and what appears to be a fake liner Id side with this being a fake decal as well I am afraid. Blurry pics, always run away...
Its a shame a helmet like this has been ruined to deceive buyers thinking its a period SS helmet. Looks like it was a nice ND lid at one point.
Agreed with my colleagues, I give this one an "F" for fake & fail!
Cheers for all opinions!!
