Quite possibly the mintiest helmet I have ever seen

Article about: Wow. So the lug is there to hold ceremonial oak leaves? If this helmet was just for special events, then maybe that explains why it is in such stellar condition.

    It's way too clean, i don't like the look of the dome stamp or the chinstrap not the markings but the way its never been fitted properly? I think the liner rivets look a bit too dome shaped aswell, i know if i posted it up here i'd be told it was a load of crap and it was %100 fake...but what would i know.....

    Forgive my ignorance but what is that thing sticking out of the air vent?
    I have never seen one on a ww2 helmet only ww1 Austrian police rural helmet.
    Strange to see one on a ww2 lutwaffe helmet.

    That lug looks like a mount for a brow plate (stirnpanzer?). I thought they did away with these after WWI.

    Entirely agree with Chris, this is the only one I have ever seen, described exactly as above. This is for sale on Bill Shea's site. Not the similarity, uncanny.
