    Hello Zok. Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately the pictures you have uploaded are far too small to authenticate anything. Upload some larger ones and that will enable things to get started.

    I am definitely no expert when it comes to SS items but I would say this is not a genuine WW2 SS helmet, the runes don't look like Quist ones to me. However I may be right off the mark with this one, wait for opinions from more experienced members, you shouldn't have to wait too long.

    Cheers, Ade.

    This is going to be a real dumb question to all you helmet "vets" out there, but how does one fake a helmet like this? Is a real WW2 helmet used with repro decals? I'm facinated by the subject of someone going through such great pains to create something like this with the intention of fooling collectors. I know that "real" SS helmets command extremely high prices, so I guess there would be a market for such clever fakes. It makes me wonder if at some point in the future what will become of these fakes......will they be eventually accepted as originals? It's an interesting question to ponder.........
