    Maybe my eyes are deceiving me, but I think this was factory refurbished, repainted and redecaled. The paint exposed by the missing parts of the decals looks lighter than the rest of the shell, and there certainly appears to be 2 luft adlers. It is 100% correct in my opinion. It looks like a big shell, a Q68 maybe? Anyway, the next time your friend wants to give a helmet away, keep me in mind! Cheers, Jim G.
    I agree regarding the factory refurbish. Looks as though there was originally a 1st pattern Luft decal replaced with a 2nd pattern. See the areas circled in red below where the downward beak and large tail feathers of the 1st pattern were originally located.

    Nice helmet with lot's of character! And for free none the less! Well done, Brit!

    Nice looking lid,
    I think the decals may have been cammoed and cleaned back but no harm done there as long as they are intact which this one certaily is. Tri-colour may have been scrapped off to conform with regulations

    Interesting stamp and go with Ade. Could be quite rare too

    I know, it's a very bad fake, but it was the first photo I could find of one on Google that didnt have a copyright on it...I was really only trying to show the design. Unfortunately, I do not have an original that I could share...Unless someone is willing to donate one to me?

    Fachschule is what we would call a Vo-Tech type of school in the US - a place to learn a trade. Maybe FSL refers to this type of education? If so, what would be the purpose of a military helmet at such a location? NH
