    Greetings everyone!

    I picked this one up recently and wanted to share. I primarily do US items but this was too interesting to pass up. It's a DRP/Ang marked shell with a relic liner that looks to have been treated with leather conditioner recently. The shell appears to have a thick application of material to the exterior and remnants of a white wash that has pitted the original paint. Heer decal is slightly misapplied and I haven't yet cleaned the cobwebs from the interior. I can make no claims of expertise on this one, but wanted to share for any feedback.

    Cheers,
    Johannes

    This is a strange helmet indeed. Looking fed to hearing views on it. I'm not versed on these commercial lids.

    some straight up decal close-ups would be nice.

    Better pictures would do this helmet justice. I like it already. Jim G.

    I am happy to take a couple more decal photos this weekend! Any other perspectives to better photograph?

    Hi, appears to be a very nice and scarce droop bill helmet, the decals look beautifully period set to the steel, even from these images, but as ever, some good straight on close up shots would be good. Leon.

    Thank you both for the feedback and for the patience as I got a couple more photos. Here's the best I could do right now.
