    Hello,

    I have a question for the pro's on this forum. This helmet is for sale on the internet. The buyer told me he bought this helmet 15 years ago as original camo helmet. What do you think about this one? And could some one attach a value to the helmet.

    Hello,i have to say that even if this is a spot on "AFRIKA KORPS" HELMET the paint over is now so poor in condition that it is only going to be of a general interest.A top solid shell that is well worth looking after all that said!

    Id say it shows unnatural wear. I'd pass on it as a collectible helmet.

    Not a helmet expert but that doesn't look at all like natural wear to me... looks like it's been sanded or something

    It does'nt instill a lot of confidence in me either, nor is it a "DAK" helmet just because it has a sand coloured camo

    Thanks for the help. Yes i was thinking also that it was sanded.
    I pass on this one.

    This exact helmet has come up before on the forum, but I can't find the link. It is actually not sand camo, but snow camo. From the pictures I can't tell if it is original snow camo paint, but I can say the paint job is quite old. It stands a good chance in my opinion. Overall, not the best condition, not very valuable, but collectible nonetheless.

    Just out of curiosity; how can you tell that this is actually an "old paint job"? Were better pictures of this one posted in this previous discussion you mentioned?

    Like I said, I'm not sure if it is original paint, but the paint has a very similar pattern to paint from original camo shells like the one pictured here:

    Just a similarity I thought worth noting. That is why I believe the paint job is old. Just my opinion. In any case, this helmet is not worth much either way.
