    Hi, and welcome to the forum.

    This is a fake camo painted upon an ex-Norwegian shell. Note the colour of the paint and the liner.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Certainly could have, have seen them in yellow before. With this one though you can see the sanding maks and the artificial aging, so I would give this one much hope

    If you're a beginning collector with a limited budget, the reissued helmets are a good way to go, as they are still original german helmets...
    Good luck with your collecting, Glenn

    Ade is spot on, as always. It looks quite convincing from
    the outside, displayed with the balaclava.........
