M42 Stahlhelm

Article about: the whole helmet looks to be fake the rolled edge finish to the shell looks very poor quality & the corners where the skirt goes into the peek looks very sharp & not the smooth round

    Default M42 Stahlhelm

    As I have mentioned Before, I have been wanting an original ww2 german helmet. Well, thanks to the Ebay link on this site, I found myself in a private auction. up for bid was a ww2 M42 stahlhelm. it looked good to me and after wanting one badly for the past 14 months I figured i'd take a leap of faith. here is the link:

    Stahlhelm M42 Deutsche Wehrmacht / Stempel im Futter !! bei eBay.de: 1918-1945 (endet 05.02.11 00:54:32 MEZ)

    so if you guys could take a look at this and tell me anything about it, and especaily whether is is authentic of not it would be a tremendous help. again, here is the link

    It is a model 35. I think luftwaffe.
    The marking in the liner appears to be the same type that is on a falshirmjager ( airborne ) helmet.
    I have some doubts about the liner.
    Lets hear from a few more folks on this one.

    if the decal is fake then its not a major deal for me, however the liner and shell is what is more important to me. so any more thoughts on that?and thanks for the identification!

    It doesn't look like a good helmet at all , paint is not correct and the liner is not correct either. A waste of your good money. What value is there in collecting fake junk ?
    Better ask first then buy but be prepared to pay 5 to 6 times more for a good helmet.
