SS Original vs Fake?

Article about: Hi, I am offered this ss helmet for a "to good to be true price". The seller tells that the earlier owner said that it was original. What do you guys think about the helmet?

    How do you guys like this battle damaged SS helmet and the other one with the steel net? I guess that especially the one with the steel net is trying to represent something it’s not.

    Velkommen til forum A really to extreme high percentage of SS items/helmets are fakes. The chicken wire helmet is ridiculous. Many thing wrong with it. It's too tight to the helmet to have any weeds and or sticks put in between helmet and wire. If there ever was put any material there, it would be visible on the helmet. It looks spray painted and neither wire nor helmet have any battle wear to it. How many times would the helmet have been taken off and put on the ground upside down. Hard to tell, but many. This is "combat" helmet never seen combat.

    What about the other helmet. The semi-relic - is it also a "keep your hands the hell away" - or you will get burned helmet ?

    Ikke så længe. Siden August. We are not allowed to write in Danish Soon we will get a "English please" comment. It's a great forum. You will not find such a nice and friendly environment anywhere.

    Du er altid velkommen til at smide mig en PM hvis du har nogen spørgsmål.

    Regards, Lars

    Dificult to tell about the semi relic from the pics. Often fakers try to spice up a relic helmet with wire, SS or other decals, to improve "value". Very often.

    The wire is a round bottom fake on an SE M35 (see the SS decal reference section...)
    The relic might have a chance but much better photos of the decal are needed. It looks like it might have had a party decal removed and reissued with a Pocher decal over a factory Q perhaps, but that's all speculation till we see better photos.

    No one of the earlier posted SS helmets was any good... How about this battle damaged m42. Does it have a chance?
