Doesn't look good from here at all . I would say the shell and liner look good. The decal is questionable but incredibly hard to see from these pics. I would say its a fake though. The camo is a modern spray job. I would have said this would have just been a standard ND M42 someone has jazzed up for profit
The spray job is too "thin"......you get this sort of look using modern spray pressure pack paints or using a small air brush, doesn't have the thicker appearance caused by using larger air guns in the field

Looks like an aerosol spray job!...not for me thanks!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Hi , I agree , with the above , it looks like a modern "fine jet" spray , not the large heavy duty type used in the field. Leon.

I can't say I like it either, and agree with previous comments regarding the spray job.
Chances of a helmet like this being authentic is about 1% in todays world. But they are out there and command very high prices, which is also why 99% of them are fake lol

Agree with my forum members modern paint no age patina what so ever timothy
Thanks guys, let's see if it ends cheap. If so, it would be a good spare-part/ restauration object.
