    Default SS / luftwaffe Helmet review

    Hello friends!
    Longtime no talk, this helmet had past through my hands (its a SS helmet) Is this a authentic piece? why does this have SS runes on one side and Luftwaffe decal on the other? I used a high power jewlers loupe to the decals (especially the SS one) I cant see any dotting that you would see on fakes. Please take a look at the pictures let me know what your consensus is on this, My thinking its a really old replica M1942 model but I am not a professional. Thanks for knowledge and professionalism gentlemen.

    Regards

    I kind of thought so. He was trying to sell this at a WWI military show here for $5000.00 USD. He wasn't getting any bites but I thought I would take a few pictures while he wasn't looking. Thankyou Chris

    Lol - the shell has indeed been messed with. Not worth much.
    Perhaps it was a Luft lid originally.........

    I have no idea if hes showing up tomarrow, However the word Chancer is spot-on. Before I packed up for the day we had a little talk with the organizer, he will have to pawn his junk somewhere else. He also had apparently had a offer on it by somebody. If I see the person Im thinking I might say something. Good to hear from you Leon! Cheers friend.
