    No good - the decals are most definitely bad, and the shell looks like a repro as well. I do not like the vent bushings. I would steer clear of this one. Jim G.

    There are a number of terrific reference books. For SS helmets only, the Kelly Hicks "SS Steel" (second edition) is a must. The bible, "The History of the German Steel Helmet," by Ludwig Baer, is about 20 years old, and has some dated information, but has a good historical focus. The very best over all reference book however, for new collectors especially, is by Ken Niewiarowicz, titled "Germany's Combat Helmets, 1933-1945". Ken's book should be your first purchase, and you should study it before wading into the minefield of collecting German helmets. Good luck, Jim G.

    And it definitely looks like the decals have been 'worked over' by the
    noticeable wear to the surrounding area. Not for me..........

    It takes a couple of years studying originals before you will develop a good eye , in fact it starts with recognizing the other details of what makes a helmet real first. Like paint , liner , chinstrap. And in this case even the shell ! So you have a long way to go. And be prepared to have 10.000$ lying around that you can deposit in a heart beat...

    Beware of what seems too good to be true as well.
