What the...?

Article about: I would assume this helmet is much more valuable than a standard one. Because I would think for this particular example that the decals were added during the war by a GI or very soon after.

    I would assume this helmet is much more valuable than a standard one. Because I would think for this particular example that the decals were added during the war by a GI or very soon after. If someone did this now with a good helmet and good original decals that would be a complete waste. But seeing as the time period is was done in It would be a very rare asset to anyone's collection.

    And for all we know this could have been done by a German soldier who worked in a field supply post! Who just wanted to be funny or make a joke. :P

    Personal preference. I wouldn't care to have it in my collection and wouldn't pay as much as a straight SD. Others would love it.
