    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

    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.

    Cheers,
    Terry

    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.

    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
