    Default SS Volunteer helmet / Handschar?

    Hi guys!

    This helmet was found in Bosnia and offered to me by a foreign Bosnian worker, what do you think about it, to me looks pretty good!?

    I must add that in hands looks realy good, especialy the decal is outstanding and it looks and feels as its should after 60 years! It was very dry and I put some oil on thats why it is so shiny! The same guy brought me an original SS M1/52 skull from his last trip back home to Bosnia and now this helmet.

    Your pictures are too small. A good decal close-up and knowing the maker and lotnr stamps would be useful.

    Also a picture of the liner.

    This is the best I can do with my camera but I will ask my frend to make me a few good photos because I woud really like you all to see this beuaty the best way possible so that there won't be any doubt about originality! I have handled a few original SS helmets in my collecting time and I know how a real one must look and believe this one is real looker!

    Only thing that I don't know and I have never seen is a almost black leather on the liner, I don't know what cause that, but its original to the helmet and the pins two .

    I'm glad you like it but I can't see anything from these pictures that makes me want to agree with you.
    I cannot understand why you would post an SS for review and withold any decent pictures and close-ups.

    Getting a maker and lotnr seems to be too much to ask as well.

    Frankoo i've got to agree with schwerpunkt , closer and better photos of the decal are needed but the reason i want them is at the moment i don't particulary like what i see.
