Fake German Steel helmets

Article about: I'm seeing crappy decals and incorrect liners, but no fake shells...other than the whacky Jugo "SS"....

    Default Re: Fake SS helmet camo cover

    One area of SS cloth that remains quite secret: How to distinguish between authentic and reproduction helmet covers. Of course the discussion of the rocker clips' composition comes to mind---although I'm not sure that it is totally correct. One in the British War Museum I saw about ten years ago, did not fit that broadbrush comment. But it could have been a "filler", although it was not noted in the description. That they were not manufactured in the pea/dot pattern cloth is pretty much documented. As far as a discussion of the correct construction of the cover goes, it seems that is a close held subject that never is openly discussed, which it should be. The reason is to prevent the fakers from producing completely correct covers. Well, that will probably never happen, because it just can't be done. They can be close, but never exact.

    Other questions:

    When did the first "correct" (OK, "near-correct") reproductions begin appearing on the market?

    How does one distinguish these old "nearly correct" fakes from the originals?

    To whom are these early "near-correct" repros attributed?

    Are there any websites or publications that give side by side comparisons of real vs fake construction aspects ?



    Is there a know list of current reproducers?

    I did have an opportunity to see an early 1st model camo cover in Normandy this past autumn. It was the first type with the sewn on rocker clips. Unfortunately, it was in a display case, so I could not get a close look at the construction, and could not get good photos. Well, food for thought, at any rate.

    I'm not into German gear, so any info about fakes is very interesting. As to reproducers of helmets, a lot of the rubbish on the market at the moment is coming from China (no surprise there) plus At the front is remanufacturing genuine WW2 shells (M35,M40,M42) with new liners, plus offering new reproduction Fallschirmjäger Helmets. There also offering decal sets shown bellow

    Unfortunately there reproductions are of a very high quality, and so give any faker a good base to work from
