    IMO this helmet is a fake due to the round bottomed ss runic shield

    Many more photos required but this is not off to a good start.

    I will be optimistic here and say we need more pics to be certain but honestly its not going to turnout well, just the damage conveniently placed at the bottom of the shield is there to hide something in my opinion. Dont hold your breath on this one

    Hi Renson, this one is a fake SS. Looks like the venerable round bottom.

    Most SS at auction houses are.

    I saw this one as well. The decal is a reproduction. I have dealt with this auction house before, half of their militaria is fake, but there is always a risk involved, no matter where you buy.

    I know how I feel when I lose $100 on a bad item. A kick in the gut for sure! I can't even begin to imagine how it feels to buy a helmet like that and find out later you lost $1800 to a complete fabrication. And add the buyers premium onto that and it's probably close to or over 2 grand. That could have been 2 grand saved towards a good one. Guess we all make mistakes just some more costly than others.

    Looking at the air vent i'm not sure if the shell is even genuine?
