    Sorry, but I'm almost possitive that this one has been put together to fool an unsuspecting buyer

    Thanks

    I'm sure the shell is real - I'm not sure what type; I'm no expert. But most likely the paint, the lacquer finish, and the SS decal are definitely post war added.

    Too true. The best thing to do when wanting to buy a piece from a specific area (say, helmets, tunics, badges, etc.) you should search for it on this forum as well as other ones, and get all the info you can, then go out and look for the piece you want. Unfortunately, there are just too many fakes nowadays, and the chances of getting screwed over are very high.

    The shell is fake, it's not even shaped right.

    I was thinking that too. The ear guards are angled downward compared to the visor portion, and the visor portion also looks strangely shaped.
