    Any sign of a maker's mark Anton? Should be inside the left side or at the rear. I tried to zoom in but couldn't make anything out. Production number is visible, i.e. 5185. Not sure about the chinstrap but the liner seems ok at first glance.

    i like the helmet but im a bit unsure of the mark 5185 as the 5 is really heavy but the other 5 is bearly readable which is odd

    Crisp decal photos are always a must. Overall it has a good chance , I think it's an ET shell.

    I bought this helmet today. Paid around 400€, which IMO isn't that bad for a SD LW with name etc. Imo it's original, but just wanted some opinions . I've asked the seller for a pic on the makers mark (just to be sure). Doesn't it look small?

    400 was a good price when you get it can you tell us the name as i think it may be postwar (its been electrostenciled in(the russians did that to a lot of weapons and equiptment that they captured)) still a beuty helmet

    I will, but you can see the name if you enlarge the pic. It says "Boestch Uffz"

    So it's common that they namned them postwar?

    no i think it may have been named postwar by a guy in a shed (possibly)
