    Bad edge + red rust = fake helmet. Looks like a stinker to me sorry.

    I'm not liking the curve of the skirt or the crimping of the edge. Looks to Me, at least, like a cut down helmet with some questionable aging applied.

    Hi , I am no expert on these Fallshirmjager helmets(despite my username!)but for me it is an aged copy. I always look for the line/mark on the rolled edge on these helmets and this one just does not do it for me. The line is quite indistinct, not what I would expect to see, also the shape of the helmets "edge" is uneven and distorted. I would say it's more likely a chinese fake than original. Just my opinion.

    I agree with the others, this is not a good one. I'm 100% sure the liner and strap are post war. The pictures of the shell are not quite good enough to tell for sure it is bad but I don't like what I see and it would not be one worth pursuing no matter the price.

    Cheers,
    Terry
