German Medic Helmet

Article about: Is this one authentic? WWII German DN358 Helmet with Leather Liner and Chin Strap Painted Size 064 | eBay Annoyed from this ads?   Somebody surely must think it is.

    Of course the inscription could be "fake". But, I find it odd a "faker" would have such precise knowledge of a battle and hospital bunker locations...something 99% of collectors wouldn't know.

    I look forward to seeing the results of your hands on inspection and I hope you are correct, but why did the seller list it as authentic but has been painted?

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Seller had no clue what she had. In fact, she posted it on a silly EBay forum asking people to help identify the item and how / where it could be sold.

    Hi, from what I can read the "inscription" only says "Med Off Zolt, Ostbunker, navel academy, Captured 9/44. That really is no detail at all as it only states a captured lid from the eastbunker, that could have been written at anytime and it holds no "place of capture"details. I really hope when you get it in hand that we are all wrong and you have scored a great helmet, but as it stands I would not personally hold out much hope. Just my opinion, no offence meant. Leon.

    Leon, no offense taken. Just research a bit more. The internet has everything needed to solve the inscription. It was a fun week long project for me when debating whether to bid. Paint close-up photo sealed my opinion before I discovered the meaning of the inscription.

    Yup, address and phone number in hand as well. That's the final research. Hand writing a letter today--hopefully, I get a response as cold calling isn't my style.

    paying over 4000 on a helmet you arent sure if its 100% authentic is crazy, should of took the advice the experts gave on this helmet.

    Thanks for the constructive feedback. I am able to make collecting decisions without the positive affirmation of forums. The vet inscription is very very telling...in fact, it points to the exact location the helmet was "captured" or souveniered (I was scolded one time by a forum for saying a helmet was captured).
    I don't want to insult you mate or anything,but the vet inscription could and most likely is just a fairy tail If it was up to me i would stick with the experts opinion.This particular helmet i've seen it before a COUPLE of times on ebay.
    Good luck on the research,hope it turns out to be a good one!
