    Default Help! Helmet ID

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to this forum and I figured a few experts on here would be able to help me solve my mystery. I was given this helmet as a gift...I know nothing of its origin prior to its purchase, but I was hoping to find out whether it's a fake or authentic. Its condition looks almost too well kept to be genuine. If anyone could provide some insight on the model or type, I would be most grateful.

    Thanks,
    PD

    i believe its a German civic police helmet but whether the decals are original im not sure you may need to show better close up pics of them.

    well i am no helmet expert but the swas decal is in mirror reflection the hooks bent left should be right so that is a negative point for me

    can you post a pic of the inside
    and any markings in the shell

    Firstly you have the mirror pictures. Secondary needs better close up pictures. Thirdly, if you are looking for a cheap Feuerwehr helmets they can be easily found in the internet in better condition, I think even our sponsors have them for sale.

    It must be the computer...I took the photos with my mac since I couldn't find my digital camera, so the decals are opposite the way they really are. Sorry, I'll try and post better pictures soon :-\

    Hi,
    I agree with the others comments, also i think the decals have been placed wrong and are also to high on the helmet.
