    Default Picked up a new Nazi Helmet. Good or Bad?

    Hey everyone. I just purchased this Nazi helmet. It's my first one outside of a 2nd Pattern Pith and Luftschutz. Does it look authentic? I have tried to show pics from all angles. Also, what sort of helmet is this exactly? It looks like it might be named inside, but I can't read it. Also a stamp into the steel inside that I can't make out. It's very heavy. Thank you!

    M34 firemans ( see the little tabs for the leather neck flap )
    Don't hold out a lot of hope for the decals ( wear is quite more so than the helmet paint ) but your photos are too blurry.

    The helmet is good and decals.
    What do you mean it is very heavy?

    Sorry for the terrible pictures. I didn't realize they were so blurry when I uploaded them. Here are a couple that look better of just the decals. I said it was heavy because I was shocked at the weight of it. It's made very well and definitely out of steel. Dull metallic thud when you knock on it. What sort helmet is this? Thanks!

    Apart from some decal wear, yours looks quite good.
