Sorry,Al,but you're right about this one! Decals bad-paint bad-tag bad. Hope you didn't pay a bundle for it! William
send it back if you can,,,this is a made over Grenschutz helmet from (West)Germany...
Fake tag, post-war liner, fake paint... overall just a junk helmet.
Looking for WWII U.S. dog tags
Pretty disgusting effort to deceive.
Thankfully I saw the warning signs and left well alone. Thanks for confirming my suspicions.
