    sorry, but this looks like a spanish helmet painted to look like a german helmet .... a terrible fake im afraid

    ss helmets are heavily faked so be very careful and research before you buy and good luck

    At this point it's only worth about its weight in steel I'm afraid. I would get a refund.

    Sam, welcome to the Forum !

    Check out the German helmet section. A great variety of original
    WWII helmets can be seen and studied........

    Sam unfortunately you got burned, the paint, decals are postwar and the helmet is not even German. If this helmet were real (and thats a big if) it would fetch in excess of $15,000 even in this dilapidated condition. Black SS M35 helmets are the most sought after German helmets there are.
