Normandy helmet legit?

Article about: Hi, I "talked" to the owner of the shop yesterday. The wire helmet was found directly out of a barn in Normandy - the wire on this helmet haven't been faked! Seller also mentioned

    It's a nice relic but Luftwaffe? i can't see any traces of grey paint. Also i'd be wary of buying from a dealer who can't even tell the model of helmet as it's an M 40.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Hi,

    Are you saying that the M42 wire in this tread is fake? - I do not hope so.
    ...I am about to have this helmet send to Denmark.

    Personally I have nothing bad to say about the owner of this shop - I know him a little.
    Okay, there are some errors in the text to som items.

    He guarantees that this helmet is original - and full refund if not.

    I will try to get more info on this helmet and perhaps other pictures.

    Regards
    Replace

    I wouldn't own that wire helmet. You may be trying his refund policy pretty soon IMO.

    Wire helmets are the very last kind of helmet a new collector should be looking at. Its like wanting to learn to fly and trying to fly a fully loaded 747 through a hurricane as your first flight. Even highly sophisticated and experienced collectors differ when it comes to wire.

    Buyer beware.
