    Brother, I have only seen one and that was a couple of years ago at one of our local gun shows and that one had the air vents holes like the M34 going around it. I don't know crap about these so please wait for the experts to chime in.

    You are quite welcome. The one I had seen and can not attest to its authenticity had the RLB emblem on the front but I need to add that the M34 vent holes I was talking about are like the German M34 fireman's helmets . The 7 hole pattern that goes around the upperside of the helm. I know experts will chime in soon!!

    I would pass on this one.
    I do not like this decal.
    The white and black RLB decals are fakes
    There is a number of variation with RLB decals sizes colors and designes

    thanks Chris. Decal looks to be navy and silver / white. Does that make any difference on these?

    I am definately no expert on Third Reich helmets of any kind, but I can say pretty much for certain that you have an excellent example of the Czech vz32, which was the general issue military helmet of the Czechoslovak military before the invasion. That's worth having in itself, and perhaps worth removing the German overpaint to restore to its original condition. Assuming of course the overpaint and decal are real - I couldn't tell you. Have a look here - German-Helmets.com - for a bit of info on the organisation the decal apparently represents.

    Good helmet, anyway, I'd buy it.
