hi guys just picked up, needing abit of help. this is my very first helmet, marked ns64 5213.
looks to be all there and good, from what i can tell its an m42 i think...
the chinstrap is marked as well but so old i cannot make it out.
there is a soldiers name written by the maker mark and lot number..
the sellers description is as follows- This helmet was brought home by my uncle, who served with the U.S. Army in France and Germany following the Normandy invasion, and then stayed on with the Army of Occupation.

Hi, looks a fine Luftwaffe M42 and it's complete. Leon.

You need to post a clear close up of the eagle before I would say you won anything. Unless I am missing something here, there is no way to identify that eagle as being real from the photos provided. This could be a dressed up no decal, but the helmet and components are real.
The Swastika looks a bit odd...need a closeup mate
See you already have the helmet up for sale on the e-stand? ,, after only just getting the Helmet ????
you're not one of those speculator guys looking to make profit are you?
i will get better pictures of the eagle in daylight, i am positive the helmet is real, the guy was like 70 and ot it from his uncle, he had a nice luger p08 and k98 as well. no imports or funny stuff here, just stuff his uncle gave him. i can give you guys the guys name and we can pull his service records lol.
i realize better pictures will be needed but it seems original and im sure its fine. il update tomorrow
