    Default Luftwaffe Cut-Out Helmet?

    Hello all!

    I cam across this helmet and was wondering if anyone had ever seen on before or could confirm its authenticity? I have read that there were some cut-out style M40's that were used to accommodate head phones and things of that nature, but I've never seen a WWI cut out helmet with the first pattern Luftwaffe emblem. The wear looks honest, but the Luftwaffe emblem really throws me off. Possibly a helmet used in the very early years of rearmification?

    Any help or insight into this piece would be appreciated.

    I like it Doug.
    It looks like a nice transitional piece.
    Not too sure about the decals but they look okay to me.

    There is one for sale on the ruptured duck at the moment:

    Thanks Saladin!

    I like the look of it too. Ever seen one with the Luftwaffe decals? I have never seen one.

    Hello Doug,
    I have just put a link for one on ruptured duck.
    If you notice that has a thin legged swastika.

    Below is one which matches your eagle...also on a model 35.
