    What kind of tools? at the moment for me the tan/ochre maybe postwar and the rust/brown and green may have been added later, I'd test the paint I doubt the liner belongs myself.

    Who knows Eric, I didn't Fake the helmet. Maybe a flat screwdriver, maybe something else. I'm not a carpenter or mechanic and don't know the names of tools. I call them whatchamacallits and hand me the thing. Very untechnical terms.

    Tell me what would you "test" the paint with exactly and how it can magically tell if the paint was applied prior to mid May 1945.

    im in no position to pass judgement but do own a normandy stahlhelm myself albiet in relic form ,from the pictures im more comfortable with the inner rim paintwork than the exterior shell paintwork ,my own thoughts are this could well be genuine but judging by the strong colours especially the green and brown im leaning towards it being embellished postwar rendering it worthless ,like i say its just my opinion so shoot the messenger
