    Default Help! Original or fake?

    Hello everyone,
    I have this helmet M35 to get my hands on a lot of things and wanted to know your opinion if it is original or fake, beyond restoration that made him that I do not like.

    Thank you very much and greetings from Argentina

    Fritz..I dont collect helmets..and I cant speak for the shell..but the rest of the helmet has been ruined with a repaint..modern decals...and a brand spanking new liner. These accommodations are not from the TR period..wait for other replies.

    I certainly express bad, I know this repainted and the liner is not original, I was interested to know about the shell that was what I generated doubts

    Here is a lesson on reproduction helmets to help the new collectors out a bit.

    Have a look at these stamps and the edge rolling of the helmet.

    Notice the wavy uneven edge and the stamping almost touching it?

    This is NEVER how an original shell was marked and the rolled edge ( while a bit wavy ) was still more uniform than the reproductions out of China or India are.

    Hope this helps you?
    Cheers, Dan
