    Dave don't you think that if the helmet was on it's side, the helmet would sit at an angle, so the paint would run also at an angle and not square on so to speak like a ten past two angle ? cheers

    Thanks guys for the opinions. I personally think it is a special Volkssturm symbol, The "Comet" unit. Steve

    Hello Stuka f!! Thanks, I was kind of kidding around : ) No need to research. I got the helmet in hand, and Dimas was correct, it was re-painted over a rusty shell. No good. I have returned it and got a refund of my $75 back. I will post another helmet for comments, I found at a yard sale soon.
    Regards, Steve
