    Anything Nazi germany is repo'ed. They typically used a dark blue color for it's finish.

    It is a nice copy in my opinion. I have seen many but i don't study them

    I have never seen split rivits go through the liner where they would rub the head on any civic style or luftschutz helmet.

    SreveR, i did not notice that but i would imagine it would eventually put rub marks in your scalp.

    If you ever studied a nazi pith helmet you will notice where the vent screws into the dome of the helmet the threads extend into the scalp area seemingly coming very close to the owners head. Anything is possible but i think the liner was replaced with the wrong arrangements on the lufts. lid.

    oh they do
    This one I'm not sure of, I can see brush marks, it may be a restored one, there are some very good decals on the market now

    This has been restored. Note the lack of decal to the inside rear rim too

    Cheers, Ade.

    These helmets are not overly expensive. I would wait for a true blue example (pardon the pun)! hahaha
    This one has too many issues.....
    CHeers!
