MAP thanks for response on other thread! Corrected picture problems. This is from a private local seller.
A made up helmet IMO. Shell is original rest is bad
I agree that it is bad - and a very poor attempt at artificially ageing the chinstrap - but why oh why oh why do people insist on taking angled shots of decals
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
A bad one as stated. I do not even think the shell itself is real - look at the font on the maker mark and lot number.
Thanks for the help everyone!
Terry's right on the shell. But looks like it was made as a re-enactors helmet (not necessarily a "fake")....but if being sold as real and the addition of the 'name'...well then it's fake now.
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

Hi, as stated, there is nothing good about this one, I to feel that the steel is not even original. A completely modern reproduction only good for re-enactment. Leon.

Michael, it is being sold as an original WWII period helmet. "Fake" it is. Thanks for the response!
Leon, I am collector more than a reenactor. Helmet probably wouldn't fit my big melon anyhow. Haha! Thanks for the response!
I apologize for my ignorance with German helmets, have been studying the forum and learning.
Thanks to everyone, Tim
