    I've got one foot in the good camo camp too mate, good luck and I hope you can get pics yourself. Muggles can't take pictures of helmets...

    DAK, Italy, Southern Russia are the most likely I reckon if it's legit.

    The owner must have done some snooping around on the Internet because the asking price definitely is not worth a gamble as it stands on these pics alone. The owner must have aspirations for a big payday. It's been two days with no reply from the owner so it may not matter anyway.

    Be carful,without better pictures do not buy it.
    The liner is period but was put in later no camo on rivets size odd.
    No one can tell with those pictures good or bad camo.

    Don't worry, I'm very careful. I'm not in the market for this one. Just up for discussion. I would like to get additional pics to further our discussion but I'm not holding out hope. I think the shell and paint may be good, with replaced liner, as I mentioned above. As you said, I also noticed the lack of paint on the pins. An interesting discussion piece.

    Here's an interesting linky to an M35 DAK helmet for sale on GWH. The similarities regarding the finish, state of the liner and pins etc. is remarkable, and for me goes a long way to making the helmet shown here a very good candidate for being original in appearance and condition.

    Unless that ones been messed with too of course....

    Asking price is $2650.

    I was told by other helmet collectors to stay away from that site,that the owner makes fake camo helmets to sell for the real deal.

    I dunno about his credentials tbh, as I said before this isn't really my main focus in collecting!

    Try this linky, and scroll down around half way on 'Helmets for Sale' to see if that helps. Otherwise I give up....

    Worked that time Ned. The paint does have similarities, but I also have a few concerns about his. Scratches seem to go in all different directions and what looks to be bubbling under the paint. These really are helmets that make you scratch your head sometimes.

    The best way to know for sure on a camo helmet is to see it in person and with daylight.
    foto will only show you what they want you to see.
