    I used to own a helmet exactly like that one. Same decals, same color, same liner, etc. If this one hadn't been in your friend's collection since '77 I would think it is the same one. They must have come from the source.

    Hi, as you suspected, this one is a complete fake. The decals are old, but certainly not 1930-40's old! The runic shield is particularly bad, and as said by the others, it is a Norwegian re-issued German helmet. Leon.

    What bugs me is that this was in private collection since 1977 ( I know the person so no doubts about all those years..)
    Already back then someone played with decals? 40 years old fake? I thought people were more into Abba in those days
    My dad collected in the seventies and he didn't have a decent German helmet on his shelves , all played with or he repainted them and gave them decals. He was more into wireless transmitters.
    People just thought differently back then.
