    To my novice eyes the liner looks like its good, and bearing in mind that I am definitely no expert I would say that the liner is original. The decal I would'nt like to comment on as the photo is a bit blurry and I don't want to make myself look stupid. Is the helmet in your possession? If so, are there any makers marks or lot numbers? I'm sure Mr Brandon or Schwerpunkt will give you better info than I, soon enough.

    For all helmets getting good decal close-ups is a must. The last two seem especially dodgy to me. I would not spend my hard earned cash on any one of them though.

    I don't like to post a response that simply labels a piece as fake, but in this case, having seen so many fake pieces with the same obvious characteristics, I feel that I have to do so this time. I don't like either of the last 2 that you posted - both look like the work of the Latvian chaps who are selling fake helmets as the real McCoy. The wire, paint, decal and strap and liner (the leather is artificially aged and the liner band rusted from the chemical treatment to age the piece) of the half basket helmet are all bad! The camo is likewise a fake in my opinion - same bad strap, liner and liner band, fake decal and post war camo paint. Ebay is full of these humped up pieces. No offense intended, but I steer very clear of anything that comes out of Latvia for that reason. Just one collector's point of view. Jim G.
