    Default m42 kriegsmarine helmet Fake or real ?

    I have this m42 kriegsmarine helmet is this one fake or real?
    The chin strap are 100% real.
    What do you think of the helmet?

    I know that the photos are not as good but I will still agree what sharper take pictures once my camera works again.

    PS: I hope you understand my English a little because I'm a Belgian.

    From these pics it's hard to say, but I don't like it. the liner is bad at least, and the chinstrap needs better pics but also looks suspicious IMO.

    Hello and welcome. From these pics I think it is bad. The strap and liner look bad. The pic of decal needs to be better and clearer but I'm not optimistic. I'm guessing these are the sellers pics?

    Soon as my camera works again come I place good photos!
    Both internals if the chin strap are not fake they are both stamped with the correct stamps.
    The decal is in my opinion no nepdecal.

    I actually have my doubts about the neck especially painting.


    in the back of the helmet is the following:

    Hard to discuss further without new pics. I would make pictures of the liner and strap details also. I'm still confident the liner is bad though I'm afraid. Did you recently buy this one?

    Even fake straps are stamped with the names of actual strap manufacturers from the war. Being stamped with the name alone doesn't make it original. Work on the better pics and we can comment further. Check the other helmet threads here for examples of the types of pics needed.

    From what Ive seen and heard I would stay away, I never saw that much writing on a helmet, chin strap and liner looks funky, proper marking or dates on it can also be faked, decal could be a gold toned heer if real, thats my two cents and now im broke lol.

    I thought that. It is a bit too 'sexy' for my liking.

    Kenneth without decent pics that are in focus and close ups of the strap, liner, paint, decal and personalization its mere speculation. I will say that the liner looks suspect as does the strap and the personalization is very suspect, I am surprised the guys parents arent listed...
