    Default Helmet ID

    I just acquired this helmet and was hoping someone could tell me something about it. Seems to be old and untouched. it looks like someone scratched out the swastika. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I work for a Helmet Mfg. so my friends randomly bring me all sorts of crazy helmets.

    It is a model 1940 helmet with a airforce decal on it. (Luftwaffe)

    Looks like the decal isn't really in place very well, it' has a bit of an offset.
    As far as the authenticity of the decal, I'm sure others can give their opinion.
    The paint looks god to me.

    cheers

    If you wish to sell it, please don't advertise it on the forum proper, but please use our classfied ads. They are free!
