Messed with m40 - but original DAK paint?

Article about: Probably not, but does the paint on this at least look like it might be original? The swastika obviously isn't, but what's up with the tag on the liner? (which was probably added later since

    Is this a Craig's listing??

    And what is the name of the seller?

    Funny that my memory is fading as I commented on the original helmet. LoL

    I must be naÔve or stupid or both. I am having trouble understanding the basis of this thread.

    So I have wasted my time replying to this "whatever" thread ? Now I have to pick & choose with caution who & what I (we) are replying to here ?

    No David, the OP in this thread saw this helmet for sale. But then just found out it is a scam. The seller is a fraud. He doesn't even own the helmet. lifted the photos from here or somewhere.

    Apparently this helmet is owned by a forum member who's posted it here before and also on USMF. LINK: Picked up German helmet from vet,

    Given the ridiculously low price, and how it was given to him by the veteran himself, who was a friend, and how he lives in upstate New York, I think it's safe to say whoever is "selling" this is NOT the actual owner and is a scammer. Question: what's the point of "selling" something you don't own? Is it just to get someone's email in order to spam them?
    I knew as soon as I saw it that I had seen it before! A great helmet for whoever owns. Leon.

    The listing was indeed on craigslist, asking only $200.

    I asked for more pictures and ofc didn't recieve a response.

    So I'm assuming the scammer would refuse to do business in person and want payment sent first. I'm just used to using craigslist for in-person transactions, that's kind of the point of it - but I guess there's people who fall for this type of thing. :/
