    hey bowlin, im in erie : )

    the helmet looks ok to me, i think maybe the picture is distorting the shape of the liner a bit.

    I like the shell and decal looks like it didnt get abused to much in the war.the liner looks consistent with the little use of the shell.lv

    Hi,greetings
    Helm looks original-are that "Bloodstains?"
    Many "Luftwaffe" helmets were worn in "Flakbatterys" found one like that(as a Boy) in my Hometown May 1945 discartet near an unusual Flakbattery in the City lake Hamburg-maybe interesting?Regards Jurgen
