    I think you will find that the general consensus is that these are 'fantasy' helmets that never actually existed.
    Going by the odd liner 'sheen' I would say a put-together helmet made up to represent a Lufty HJ unit.

    Both decals are most certainly bad, as is, I suspect, the liner. Jim G.

    Well if it is real, it is in amazing condition... truly.

    The Luftwaffe decal is a well known fake.

    Here is the exact decal. Note the shadows pointed out by the red arrows.

    The bird is definitely bad, with many more graphic inaccuracies than those pointed out above. As Dan already said, it is a fantasy piece.
