    Definitely a post war helmet, no doubt about it. I would say original shell, everything else is repro. The dead give away is the M-1943 stamp. The Germans did not refer to their helmets as m1934, m1940, m1942, etc etc. Also the liner is in perfect condition, unless this one was frozen or placed in a time machine, it is a reproduction. Even the best Mint conditioned original liners show wear along the folded edge. You should post pictures of the two decals.

    I'm not sure about the shell but the liner is 4th Reich
    Looking for the photo albums of Leutnant Emil Freitag, 3. / G.R. 377

    Helmet hs no air vents. Liner leather has forehead air perforations. Definitly post war production.

    Post war production I'm afraid. Both the helmet and the liner.
