Both decals are 80% or better. When Helmet was reissiued for wwll the vent lugs were upgraded to m35 style

    Ok but as it has never been posted on the forum before it will be very hard to authenticate this helmet. Odds are against it.
    Both decals designs are unknown to me. Best post this one up on German Helmet Walhalla.

    Hi, well it's one I have never seen before so that puts me off, but I am always willing to learn if I have missed something. Leon.

    CRICKETCHRIS1944, in your opinion, why is helmet and the decals fake?
    Points of interest to me. The original lugs were removed and replaced with air vent grommets - never seen that before. NEVER seen the Heimwehr Danzig police decal before - ever, in any way, shape, form, or fashion - that is astonishing. The outer shell still wears the original Austrian brown with the original decals and the strangely applied camo?! The exterior looks pretty darn real to me, certainly wouldn't rule it out. - outstanding whatever it is...

    Never seen anything quite like this and am very much a skeptic in regards to it. That being said - new discoveries are still made occasionally that get everyone all revved up. As a collector, I look forward to those new discoveries.

    Agree with Chris, not real.
    That plastic "Danzig" decal is known since years as a fake.
    Common on eBay or other auction sites...
