    Bad decals and a foreign liner, Italian I think, maybe Polish, but definitely not German. Paint is bad, and the chin strap is probably bogus as well. Take a wide berth.

    Agree with Helmet2id...stay far away from this.

    Liner looks Italian (I can't see the preforated sizing from the pictures however). The chinstrap IMHO is pure Itailian M33. Probably post war as well.

    And while I turn to others on verifying decals even I'm confident to say these are really bad...plus very UGLY.

    Hi Al, you are correct once more. It is a completely refurbished helmet with really poor HEER decals. Leon.

    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,
