    Default Luftschutz Lid for Review

    Hello to all, does this lid look correct? The maker's #s are Paul Diener of Dresden, I think. The yellow material under fingers has padding in it. The grey or brown under the lid is light reflection or something else as it is all blue underneath.

    Looks legitimate from here....a very decent "two piece" Gladiator helmet.

    shell is authentic, very clean shell, luftshutz helmets came with so many different liners, I would rather have another gent comment chin strap and liner

    What would you know about victory? I killed a she-wolf in her den, armed with only a knife. I escaped the Caughnawaga Indians who sought to burn me alive. And, I was the sole survivor of a shipwreck at the Battle of Havana. So you'll excuse me if I choose not to follow your advice." ―Israel Putnam speaking to a Continental Army officer at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

    Do you have it in hand? It looks good and hopefully it's just the photo and my eyes. Photo #4 where you see the paint chip. Right above that the helmet looks like its got banged up a bit but it looks like the damage is under the paint.

    @ map, yes in hand, I can feel the spot, but cant tell what it is. Could it be rust coming through the paint?

    It's weird. Almost looks like Bondo (or however you spell that auto repair paste) that was then painted over. Or maybe rust underneath that is causing the paint to bubble. But I trust John's judgment.

    I just edited my post about rust, have a 06 Jeep wrangler I bought new, but now rust is coming through the front fenders, the spots are like whats on the helmet.

    Hi, if it is rust coming through to the paint, the paint on top of that spot would be extremely brittle. I think it was incorrectly restored and ,or, was painted over the rust. It presents nicely though. And interior looks good to me, good decal and markings, common practice of ''padding" this type helmet, must have been thought of as uncomfortable to wear with the thin, flimsy liner.
