    Hi Jean, I am certain this is a aged fake. Compare to the originals shown here in the latter part of this thread:

    http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/ss-hel...unes-259942-2/

    Hi Harry, the colours on the side have no connection to Sweden.

    Post WW1, in 1921, the Reichwehr ordered State colours to be painted on the steel helmet.

    Blue/Yellow was for Braunschweig.

    Hope this is of interest?

    Cheers, Ade

    I am with Ade on this ( fake).
    The shape also looks odd to me and aged.
    It should have a marking ET64

    The ear cut out on most fakes seems to be too wide, also the skirt in front of the cut out seems to be more of a pointed shape.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
