Nazi Helmet, I can't find this one anywhere!

Article about: I have looked everywhere and I cannot find a Helmet with both of these logos on them! I believe this might be before the war because the helmet edges are folded as opposed to the ones made d

    Thanks Walkwolf,

    It seemed no one had the heart to tell him so bluntly, as you.
    Maybe he will study a book.

    Sorry if I appeared blunt in my response.

    Studying from books is great, but sight, smell and touch are even greater !
    A single photo on a web site or one page in a book is not enough sometimes.
    (There are so many 'German' helmets on on-line auction sites claiming
    to be from the WWII period mixed in with truly genuine ones that it's
    a bit overwhelming if you aren't sure what to look for.)

    This helmet appears to me as if somebody wanted a WWII german helmet
    badly enough to just make up one for themselves, not having a clear
    picture of what it should actually look like.

    I know. 30 years ago I did the same thing to a M42 from Norway.
    Stripped it down to bare metal, painted it gloss black inside and out
    and put on SS and National decals............... It looked great, but was
    totally wrong ! (Sorry to be so long-winded!)

    If this helmet has been passed down from a family member, you should
    just treasure it for what it is................Or if it bothers you, just remove
    the decals only. Just this would make it look more 'genuine'.

    Regards, Steve.
