    Default Unknown German Helmet

    Hey mates..

    Just got my claws on (what i think) is a cool german helmet,got it here in Central america - but i donīt know of what sort, neither if itīs real or fake,no decals at all but it sure has many markings on the shell & liner-metal-ring.. So, what can the experts in this matter tell me? Good or bad news? I hope theyīll be good... Here are picīs, any comment is more than welcome..

    Looks like M42, maybe it's the angle of the photo but the vent hole seems larger and higher up. To me it looks ok.. Many more people who know a lot more will be able to help

    Looks like "ET 64" I can see a very faint "4" there....

    I paid nothing, i traded it against an vynil & leather Russian Tank driver helmet/cap which included headphones, wires, connectors and stuff. But if its real i guess the deal was good..

    Theres something not quite right about it, its a repainted shell, with a replaced liner, which i dont think was original to the helmet, the liners been messed with as the steel spring isnt positioned in the liner band, the rear marks look a little odd with the 8 being upside down, but that might be a mistake, im not too sure but i think the marks have been added after painting, if that is the case it could be a fake shell, i reckon DougB might take a look at this one or Frank

    It should have a decal , leather doesn't look quite right. Difficult to judge the paint color from your pictures.
    Shell is original in my opinion but it's not a very collectible piece taking everything into account.
