    the pic is not of a ww II german helmet,possibly a german Grenschutz helmet used by Germany in the 1950's and '60's...repainted i would say with a fake nazi decal of some kind....

    Wonder what the deal is then. On the article it says the veteran recovered it. Just doesn't make any sense.

    can't always trust a veteran for an authentic helmet then.

    Definitely not a WW2 Helmet. As MM says, possibly a Border Guard lid from the cold war era. The decal on the left is a definite fake, and applied or painted to resemble a party shield that you may see on an SS helmet.The SS runes would be on the other side. Wonder why its being called a WW2 vet bring back??

    he may have well "recovered it" maybe meaning he repainted and re-badged it or he might have "recovered it" simply by bringing it home with him....wonder what "incredibly harrowing battles he fought in to obtain a valuable war trophy like that"...

    For all we know he could just be an attention craving fake thats made a mistake with his props, I'm not saying he is but you never know.

    All we can say for sure is the caption to the picture is incorrect.

    The Vet may be on the level with the rest of his story.

    But just because someone is old, it does not make them honest or truthful.

    Cheers, Ade.
