    by looking on helmet interior surface it,s makes me wonder that it,s been laying long time without POTATO BAG on it.for me it looks like somebody did that long after war.reason can be enything-playing,making look it bether,somebodys memories what they seen during war etc.Sorry-just my opinion.

    I have to say that I am also feeling that way....just my opinion too and it would help to have helmet in hand...but given the rust and the lack of a liner - it would be easy to add this afterwards....If there is no liner and if the liner band is removed - the split pins should be "floating around" underneath the cover - no? Looks like the helmet rusted "under" the cover.

    I don't think we're trying to put him down or anything...don't get us wrong....I personally don't feel comfortable about it....that's just me. Doesn't mean anything. It's just my 2 cents. I have to say though - you need to be careful: always buy the item - not the story. I learned the hard way when I first got into collecting militaria!
    If it was gift: no harm no foul! I never mentioned anything about anyone wanting to profit from this helmet....I'm just being analytical, not hypothetical.....

    Cheers!
