Car Boot Gems, (Hopefully.)
Hi, first up is this SS helmet which I doubt is genuine, well at least the decal isn't judging by looking at them on the forum. Be nice for the lid to be genuine. The other 2 not sure of either, the fact they only cost me £25 for the 3 so not to bothered if all are fake. They were sold by an old gent who was clearing out his loft and could not recall where they came from as they had been up there for some time he said he had been in the army during the later part of WW2. To him they where just junk and wanted rid of. What do you think, junk?
I hope all the pictures are clear enough to make a judgement.

the photos are nice if you want to sell them on let me know , the helmets all have problems starting with bad decals and paint.
Hi, they look to all be original shells that have been repainted and decaled. The granulated slate grey that these appear to be coated in is readily available on ebay as are R LARSEN chinstraps. But for £25 I think you have done pretty well as the photos are worth that alone. Leon.
