    A cleaned up relic at best. Photos are even worse on an iPhone. Not worth $175 to me.

    I've seen this "pitting" pattern on another helmet posted here recently......couldn't find it unfortunately. Me thinks this is odd....
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    I'm not sure if it is outside is faked or not, (Todd is much more qualified) but I think it is an odd coincidence to have seen the same very unique "relic" pattern in a similarly condition helmet posted here over the last month.

    Also IMHO the liner and split pins are not original to the lid.

    That's what I was thinking to michael, but he's happy with it, I just trading that one helmet I posted awhile back that some said I wasted my money on well I just got 3 very nice German bayonets for it and it turn out to be a ef66 batch number 8823 which put it as a single heer helmet but it was no way pitted like this one was

    Todd is spot on!
    To add to that, a shell in that condition (pitted to high buggery),
    would likely not have a liner, in as good a condition that the one fitted to it appears to be.
    So IMO, not original to the shell.

    I suspect both decals are bad.

    Thanks guys for your input, I agree also even tho I am new to German helmets I have learned a lot from this site, I just wish he would have waited before buying it and had me post the pics before hand
