    This is a German helmet that was reissued to the Norwegians after the war...the paint and the red-dyed liner are the giveaways here...
    The decal is fake...
    cheers, Glenn

    I've been a collector for 39 years...These Norwegian re-issues have been on the market for years, easily recognized by the red-dyed liner, and the peculiar green paint...
    cheers, Glenn

    100% agree with the Norwegian assessment. The paint and liner are a split second giveaway after you have looked at these pots for a couple of years
