    The helmet is an absolute obvious fake sir. For a value ? I my self wouldn't pay anything for it.

    The leather is absolutely the wrong type to be a German helmet liner. The decals can be spotted as fake from a mile away. The manufacturers stamps on the helmet are laughable.

    There are a lot of individuals that go bouncing around the forums trying to get someone vet an item as real when in truth it is a fake made to deceive, usually by someone of low character wanting to use a confirmation of an item as a COA to sell it to some poor unsuspecting individual that believes bull$hit stories that have little or no experience with legitimate items.

    Yep - looks a Chinese made copy. Not worth much
    in this fake-aged conflagration - it's all bad. Give it
    to one of the neighbour kids to play with.........

    Something tells me the Grandfather and Attic story is just that. As false as the helmet is.

    Well I'm not a WWII collector but I could see the liner wasn't right and the decals look wrong but the helmet shell is wrong too? I'll stick to what I know or at least what I think I know.
