    Default Authenticating a KM helmet (#1)

    Hello everyone, recently I have come across two helmets that the seller is claiming to be 100% original Kreigsmarine helmets. I have limited experience dealing with these and would like to get other collectors opinions on the pieces before I decide to purchase them or not. Please let me know what you think.

    I am posting one here and the other in a different thread.

    Thank you!

    Can you post photos of the decal in natural light and in perfect focus? Also post maker and lot number, and closeups with no glare of the helmet paint as well.

    That's not a KM imo , also seems to have a coat of lacquer on it.
