    On a fair today in the Netherlands I came across this helmet. It look very nice but is it authentic. The seller could not give a 100% guaranty.
    I forgot to take pictures of the liner. Bad mistake. Anyway is there anyone who can shed his/her light on the matter?

    Those decals are laughable. No need to go any further.

    Sellers often use this guarantee ruse... 'I cannot be absolutely sure of its authenticity, so I'm letting it go cheaper.' Mugs fall for it - thinking that they are getting a bargain.

    just the decals?

    Irish: We all start somewhere and you have done well by asking first. Except for the shell, this is a humped up helmet meant to deceive the uneducated or new collector. Paint and decals are 1,000 yard fakes. Would be interest to see the liner as I would guess it too is some post war concoction
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    I'll just say, an "interesting" take on SS runes

    That is one of the most awful looking attempts to fake any style of helmet i have ever seen. I am sure the seller knew exactly how "original" that this was, fortunately you did not fall for it! Leon.
