    WWII German helmets marked 'ET67' are Chinese repros, I believe, and a sure way
    to discern from genuine, As mentioned, there was no size 67 on real WWII lids.
    I've also seen the ones with edelweiss impressions. These are repro as well.

    German helmets were made in 'even' sizes: 60, 62, 64, 66, 68 and 70. Size 60
    and 70 are rather uncommon. As Davejb has said, some markings can be
    lightly stamped and others obscured by paint. I don't think repros have
    any lot numbers either.

    Brand new, complete repros are normally $80 to $100 delivered.
    An original but semi-relic shell will be slightly more.............

    A repro I bought was 130$ in "used" condition. I like it. The lot number is ET67, oh well a fake but its cool. I will remember even number lots! Thank you guys for the help!
