Freikorps helmet?

Article about: Found this helmet on Craigslist. When I went to look at it, there was a swastika on top with dots. Is this a legit Freikorps helmet. Is the painted-on swastika genuine from the time period?

    As the guy's have said, this is no Freikorps helmet, just a played with lid. Leon.

    I'll have to disagree with the "aerial recognition design" story , the swastika (with the dots between arms) on this helmet is actually the Hindu swastika rangoli and predates the Nazi version by thousands of years. I am surprised the paint from this Hindu swastika has survived all these years, especially after someone has tried to remove it with alcohol...... "Good Fortune" I guess.

    Trench art IMHO.
