    Default Quist SS Helmet + WW1 Camouflage Helmet ??

    I have just obtained a couple of German helmets.

    Are they genuine?

    I think that one is a Quist SS and the other a WW1 Camouflage Helmet

    Both came from the same source in the UK will be for sale.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Greg

    Hi, given that the "SS" helmet is an NS made example, that rules out both the Quist SS decal and the ET SS decal which are of this "type/style. On that basis, even from these blurry images I would have to say that it is a fake decal that has been scrubbed back to age it. As for the WW1 helmet, that needs to be in the WW1 Imperial German helmets section for the experts to see it. Leon.

    SS bad for sure for all the reasons Leon noted. Plus the heavy scrubbing of the decal is meant to deceive.

    The M16 should be posted separately in correct forum but the liner looks like a repro IMHO. Not sure about the liner band but given that the liner pins appear to be messed with I would not doubt it could be a fake also. Will leave observations on the camo scheme to others.
