Funny I should read this as my dad swore he he tied a string onto a black German helmet lying in a field in Normandy and pulled on it to see if it was booby-trapped and sent it home it never made it home stolen sometime in between but I always thought it was just a dark feldgrau paint but he always maintained it was black. wish it could have made it home nice helmet BTW timothy

Hi Jim , looks to be period as the others have already said. The wear on this one is looks great and really shows it's contemporary age relationship to the steel. A nice and unusual piece. Leon.
