It concerns me that the dome of the helmet is white washed. Just think, why would the soldier waste time painting an area that won't be seen by anyone? This is just my opinion though, wait for other helmet experts, as I have been out of the helmet game for a while.
Not for me.
Fake white camo; decal is a bad one too.
Jeez........... not even close
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling

Personally, I think that the makers of these fake helmets,medals,daggers and uniforms, etc should be charged and imprisoned as felons, since they are not marking them as reproductions and are marketing them as authentic. Why are they not nailed for fraud? People should not be allowed to be cheated out of countless millions of dollars each year simply because they collect a politically incorrect hobby....Is time the officials take a closer look on this problem and do something serious about it.

It would probably open a can of worms, as I suspect a lot of "ignorant" folks find TR collecting distasteful (especially anything to do with the SS) as it is and would like nothing more than to see the whole hobby banned. This type of nonsense flairs up in British tabloid newspapers from time to time
That said, as someone who has experienced being cheated out of my hard-earned money, my own personal opinion towards the fakers is less than polite
