    Its luftschutz, and can we have some pics of the decal? Then people will be able to determine its originality.

    Since ebay has restrictions about that I have asked for the seller to send them via. Email. As soon as he responds Ill post them.

    Hi, as Matt has said, it is a Luftschutz helmet, not Luftwaffe. I think it is probably ok but you will need those decal close-ups to be sure. Leon.

    Luckily they didn't list it as an SS or you would have thought this was an SS helmet...

    William,

    Your getting there and starting to learn more and asking g first. Keep it up, but still....start researching and studying the threads here and BUY some good reference books. it takes time and dedication but is worth it. If so, there would not have been this simple miss identification of a very common and relatively low cost helmet. And as Schwerpunkt alludes to... protects you from losing money due to being unprepared.

    I think it's a good one but more pictures are needed.

    As Michael said it looks good (I usually focus on british helmets so dont take my word for it)but more photos of the decal in natural light and close up photos also of the decal are needed.
