    Helmet collecting and validating has a lot to do with comparing a decal to the shell maker. Having a lotnr is also handy.
    Never buy a helmet whereby you don't have this information : Maker , size and lotnr and a good decal close-up.
    Any opinions that form based on the pictures now provided will be purely speculative.

    BTW The pictures are ridiciously small as well.

    Still because the sun is shining I will venture to make a call based on these thumbnails.

    I can tell the decal is a Big foot decal so that would rule out it being a KM helmet (no KM BF decals exist) and the maker should be Quist.
    These are the most commonly faked decals so from this picture I cannot tell it's original.

    Like I thought a big foot decal typical for the Quist maker. A Heer one as these were never made in a KM version. KM was not a large branch.

    Pics are still to small to say it's a good one or a fake but I'd give a fair chance since it's on a Quist shell.
