    Default Camo and wire covered M42 ...... legit?

    Hey guys,I am interested in this helmet. It looks good to me, however it is not local and these are the best pics I have so far. The helmet looks like it is marked ET66 and the liner is marked 58 obviously. Seller also says you can see part of a dome stamp also. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Well the inside certainly doesn't match the heavily weathered exterior.....I'm banking on a post war refurb display piece or re enactor

    there is a seller on ebay who has one of those every few weeks - all are almost identical
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    This is not one for me either,look at the areas where the wire touch the "cammo",there is no wearing down to the paint at all.The cammo itself also has "chips"in areas that should have been protected by the wire basket!! Also the skirt has rust all along the edge and yet if the basket were on this helmet to start with it would have again given it more protection from being picked up and put down.As the others have said,this is a post war re-furb!

    Repro liner postwar wire and camo. If real a helmet would sell for close to $8k in an auction, or more. A similar one with veteran provenance and 110% real sold in auction for $12k last year if the Swiss cheese brain of mine remembers correctly. Also I suspect the personalization is bogus as well.
