    I thought it looked quite good with seemingly equal aging on the decal and the helmet shell. One other question: Are soldiers generally killed by the shrapnel that leaves holes on helmets such as this one, or do the damages occur after the helmet has been removed?

    I guess helmets could sustain substantial damage both in wear and simply by lying on the ground in a heated battle situation. I don't think the soldier would have had a very pleasent day if the damage occurred while he was wearing that particular helmet..

    I don't see any obvious signs of it having issues... you should get the additional photos though and try to get the attention of the SS helmet/decal experts

    Is the Helmet coming direct from the Diggers ?

    get more photos of decal but at this point it is good as a relic helmet and until decal photos are in that is all we can hope to say as we can't see it brilliantly

    I am not sure but the helmet is being sold in wyoming by someone who seems to be very connected with diggers. His website shows most of the articles being found in the field that are for sale.

    That was my thinking too, the one thing that gave my more faith in this specimen was that the patterns of rust and decay cary on through the decal and not under it when you look closely. But since I am no expert I wanted to make sure.
