    Don't forget to copy and post the photos please. Once you purchase this item, the link will die making this thread useless for further research. Thanks

    Welcome to the forum!

    Can the photos be copied and posted here please. When the helmet gets sold or the link goes dead we'll have a thread which will be discussing something no-one can see.......

    the wear on the paint matches with the rest of the shell and I dont understand why it would be painted like that by someone. The seller is assuring me it is a original flak helper helmet and if I buy it I have 7 days to return for any reason. I know you guys know more than me but I still think its original. what would you pay for it if its original?

    Post war done.
    I am thinking by a kid a long time ago.
    All three rivets are also painted black (I am sure that was regulation) joking.
    The reason flak helmet are black is to not be seen at night(the story goes)
    So why would you paint half of it and the botton part at that.
    Not a flak helper helmet sorry.The reason he is saying flak is to sell it.

    so even though the decal is good its not worth $575? damn I can never find anthing when it comes to german helmets. just so everyone knows since I don't think im going to buy it im sure he will not allow me to use his pictures. I will still ask and I would like to see some other opinions please.

    Hard to tell if the paint is original based on the photo, but the decal is clearly original. The size 60 shell and black paint support the possibility of a flak helmet, which is why I think the seller has labeled it as such.

    I think its original but if people are skeptical I just cant go through with the purchase I think I saw this helmet a long time ago for sale on the website if its been there so long something has to wrong also look how the drawstring is in the liner it looks like someone didnt know what they were doing.
