German Steel helmet with Copper plating
Hi, I'm new here...I have what I presume is a M40 helmet with no liner but interior stampings as is usual. However, the helmet has been plated with copper inside/outside. A magnet will stick to it so I assume there is steel in it. I found the plating after sanding the top layer of varnish??.If it is fake why the trouble of plating it?. Is this common for replicas?

Hi and welcome to the forum!
This has been done post war and more than likely used as a bikers helmet.
