Not being an expert and looking closely at your pictures do I see a camouflaged helmet?...It appears there are different colour tones on your second picture that you uploaded.
Both the KM and Heer helmet decals had a black background to them.
So I am going to plump for a toned down army helmet or a cammed up Coastal Arty one.
I guess the choice would be yours but it looks a solid enough display piece but the price you mention still sounds a lot to me.
Looks like a Heer semi relic helmet to me with rust pitting to the metal not camo
Thanks for taking a look!
I see what you mean about the tone, I suspect thats due to the corrosion though. The finish seems to be green. Would coastal artillery utilise the Heer decal then? To be honest, I'm not happy with the price if the piece isn't Kriegsmarine; I already have a relic Heer and want to branch out my collection before getting another.
with a decal that worn it is impossible to tell from these photos but the condition is poor so I would pass on it if I was you.
Hi, it is not really a big deal either way in this case as the condition is poor. The asking price is fair enough, but I would not bother with it personally. The "two tone" colour is not cammo by the way. The early apple green paint often turns a shade of brown due to age and storage conditions, and that has happened to this one in places giving it that "two tone" effect. Leon.

It's a nice condition relic or poor condition non -relic. i think it straddles the line but that is just my view. No science to this, just opinions
But IMHO overpriced, my tops is $150 but that is just me. Relics, as they are relics should be cheap. I would lean towards Heer but can't really tell as Frank noted
