    Chris, from where im sitting it looks ok but id like to see it with that dust removed, from the whole helmet as it looks recent, also whats the mnftr
    I do not know who the Manifacturer is?
    I E-mail the guy about that ,all the pictures I posted there was no maker pictures I thought that was strange .If there is a serial number but no maker marking that would make that helmet a post war and not a good ww2 helmet.

    I would add that if this has been faked someone did an excellent job of it. And if going to that much trouble why not create a rarer helmet... SS, Org. Todt, etc?

    If nothing else over the years I've learned to never be surprised at what turns out to be fake in TR items. But if I saw this for sale at a good price and I had the money to spare I'd grab it. But of course always best if you have the option to do just this and check with others to make sure before you leap.

    The guy want 390$ for it,but will offer 300$ but only if I am 100% sure I really prefert the second luftwaffe decal type.

    Im afraid you may be correct on that point, its a shame because it looks halfway decent, i wondered why you didnt post the side skirt for the mnftr,

    If real and with the amount of liner damage i would think $250 is a reasonable price, are there any markings on the liner or have you not seen the helmet in person yet

    What is the sellers inspection/return policy? If no returns then I'd definitely walk away. But if he allows a certain number of days for inspection/return and shipping isn't a killer you might consider it so you can inspect the helmet in person.

    Does he offer any guarantee? If a dealer then most reputable dealers will be happy to offer a guarantee, at times lifetime that a piece is original.
