The German Stahlhelm: Heer, Luftwaffe, Kriegsmarine, Waffen SS and all others who wore the steel helmet
Sure looks good. Im no expert on these and can not be a judge on originality, but I wonder why they would have put the wire on so tight. As mentioned by another member in regards to another wire clad helmet here recently.
An actual double decal Chicken-wire KM. Impressive!

Another nice one
If anyone would like a custom piece of artwork for your war room please let me know! I am currently doing A2 sized sketches of a subject of your choice. Either copy an existing picture or create a scene based on your brief. Details in the 'other militaria' section of the classifieds.
The wire is not all that tight. Just on the rim and the top. There is space around the decals and sides, as one would expect. Also, the wire is damaged in places which makes it loose, too.
Very nice 3 twist small mesh European wire, and on a KM too! This is one rare helmet for sure and I like it!
