    Relic helmets at best. Unless you want to collect messed with and rusty relic helmets, I wouldn't bother with these.

    First off I am no expert at all when it comes to helmets but I would say these do look original just by the wear on them and the rivets on the side, how much are you paying for them if you don't mind me asking

    they look like original shells in relic condition, the first one has a post war paint attempt.

    I think its totally up to you if you wanna buy them or not, that's not too bad a price but you could possibly find some better pieces but you might have to look to pay more

    If you want good German WWII helmets, don't waste time or money with these two. If you have enough to buy two rusted shells, you should save that and then save a little more and buy a nice no decal M42 or a fire police helmet, which are only 1-200 Euros more. You will not get a return on your investment with these two helmets.

    definitely not m42s, as they have rolled edges. I cant tell from these photos if they are m35 or m40.
