    Default SS Helmet bought in small Russian village

    Here is a helmet bougt in a small Russian village. It is the only 2 pics i have at the moment. What do you think? Face is blurred because it is not me wearing it. I can send interested people pics in full resolution if needed. It is possible to get real good close-ups of decal on strap in full res. I of course wonder if it is a fake.

    Datrus, more and better pics are needed for a fair opinion, close ups of the decals are a must. John

    I know it's not the best pics, also they are at a bit of an angle. Any opinions on the helmet itself?

    Hi Datrus as said above it is nigh impossible to give any worthwhile opinion of the helmet with these 2 photos. Closeups are a must of the decals, the chinstrap, interior, both profiles, the top and the interior. So about 8 good photos are needed to give you any opinion.
    Cheers
    PS I like the blurry face guy, I thought it was a mannequin at first LOL.

    I will look into it DougB. The Helmet is in the Datcha (summer house) but not too far from Moscow. The blurry faced guy is one of my friends, and i did not want to post him on the forum

    This is me and my wife

    Your wife is beautiful my compliments Datrus.

    The helmet is an M40 DD SS, which puts it among the rarest of the DD SS if it is in fact real. That said it is one of the most heavily faked as well. Looking forward to more pics!

    Doug

    Nice macro shots of the decals are a must especially when buying a DD SS.
