    Ty. Your trying to sell yourself on this. Understandable. We all like to think we found a great piece. I would recommend you send the pics to Brian Bell at germanhelmets.com He only deals with helmets and is very familiar with high end fakes.

    Waffenbruder, way ahead of you. I am currently awaiting his reply. I've dealt with Brian before, some say he is the Grand Guru of German Helmets. But I found that 100% of the people both on here, and on Wehrmacht Awards Forum are against this helmet. I'm seeking a return.

    Dave,

    I've been studying and studying 1st pattern Runic shields online and comparing this example to originals. Either it is infact an original, or it is the best fake to date. The geometry seems to be exact, and the background shows good metallic content. I will have to further inspect upon receiving this.
    Even with my glasses on i can't see any metallic content in this decal

    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    That's not a correct Pocher runes decal and it's not the best fake out there either.

    The interior seems to have lost it's factory base color as well , lots of oxidation and pitting there and no patina or wear on the paint.

    Strap also post war.

    Brian Bell's site contains good bits of info but also some errors.
