    The helmet looks as though it has been cleaned up and re-painted. There is evidence of pitting underneath the paint. So it is unlikely the decals are genuine. There are better people than me on here to advise you though. I would think the helmets are genuine, but not the finish.

    The chinstraps on these helmets are not correct, I think they are Czech.

    So my guess is they are probably repainted original shells with postwar liners
    made to look 'old and tattered' (to hide the fact that they are not TR period)
    with faked camo and super obvious repro decals..........

    What you have are 2 model 40 helmets that have been repainted. One with fake decals and the other with an attempt to create a camo helmet. The liner in the decaled helmet definitly is not period German. The chinstraps both are not period German. The liner in the camo helmet appears to be whats left of a German liner. As is both are poor attempts to look like WWII helmets. Certainly not worth paying any money for. Any value would be in the current price of scrap steel.
