    110% fake. Looks like it could be a Norwegian lid that has been altered.

    Sad. The guy has used repro decals, but put them in the same area
    Norwegian ones are placed. Definitely an amateur who has no idea
    where they should go. The helmet wouldn't look too bad
    if the decals were in their correct position.........!

    Agreed with both of you, a very easy to spot fake.

    I think this one could definately be classed as SNAFU

    I think I have a set of those repro decals, used them on a restoration, they are from "at the front"

    Welcome aboard!

    As others have stated a terrible fake.

    Pick up a copy of Kelly Hicks updated edition "SS steel". Its a great book and I highly recommend it if your in the market for an SS helmet, good luck.
