    Default M35 "Normandy camo" Real or Fake?

    I am thinking about buying this helmet. What do you guys think about it? And if it's authentic what would it be worth?

    The decals look like they have been uncovered post war, also I think there was chicken wire attached.

    Looks good to me, pity that the decal has been dug out though, still a great piece of history

    Thanks

    W39, Unfortunately there cannot be a reasonable opinion good or bad given about this helmet because the photos are simply much to far away and do not show the many details needed to give a proper or informed evaluation, it is only guessing from these pics. The devil is in the details.

    Websites like that are the reason that good photos are needed when evaluating helmets.

    I agree with you ,but they have one helmet that just look so much like this one camo helmet are all different from each other but this one just look to much like the one posted M35,camo the same the chicken wire marking.We do need more pictures but I got this feeling it is fake.please look at that website and look at that helmet under camo.
    I know I am hard when it comes to helmet,I just do not want anyone to pay good money for a fake.

    Yes I see it, impossible to say the subject helmet comes from this "restoration" website or not, chicken wire ghosted fakes are a dime a dozen out there. Without good clear closeup photos I wouldnt buy anything much less an "authentic" Normandy camo former chicken wire helmet.
