    looking at this helmet on EB*y and I see the background is the same as another supposed SS relic helmet sold by the same person discussed earlier in this forum whcih was decided to be deemed fake. Very convincing to this rookie ! the helmet is numbered NS64 D435. What do you think?

    the earlier discussion on another relic by the same seller:
    Relic SS

    Most of this guys helmets are fake. I almost bought a fake saurland helmet that looked very similar to this. Isn't he from Riga, Latvia with the user name of ssvoket or something?

    Looking like a very round bottom on that decal.

    I also saw this on eBay, if I remember correctly the guy never mentioned it was an SS helmet in his listing. He was just selling it as a regular relic shell.

    I agree. Looks like a round bottom type fake.

    Can u try and get some close-up shots of the decal?

    It seems that a lot of fakes come to light on eBay, almost like a minefield.

    Thanks for the feedback, it looks like he reallly tries hard at making good fake , faded decals..of I hadn't read the forum and seen another helmet form the same seller I may have bid. Like CPG1066 said, he doesn't try and say its SS either adding to the deception. If Ihad a hundred bux I would buy ti just to have a close up of his handy-work! LOL!

    Maybe even a photo shop decal. Decal added to a relic helmet by getting a picture of someone elses decal.....
