    Well im trying to work out if its a flat rimmed Gladiator , but it seems to have too much arch in the rim, it should be flatter than that, unless its another variant of the flat rim

    To me, it looks like a one piece gladiator luftschutz helmet. I'm not a fan of that decal. I've never seen this type of decal before. I'm not 100% that it's bogus...but I don't think I would want to take the chance. I would pass. Good luck on it!

    Chris, it would be interesting to know if this one has a leather or white canvass liner

    Ah Jim, I thought i might be on the right track with the flat rim but i was going by an older reference which was a line drawing, they are not always that accurate but the photos in mine does show it to be a lot flatter than that, could this be one of the type made in Albania for the occupying german police
