    Default What have I got????

    Yesterday I bought a black M40 German helmet from an antiques store. The owner said it was an SS helmet....money back guaranteed. It has a partial decal of the early SS rune on one side and an almost complete party shield on the other side. I suspect the decals may not be original (see pic). It does not have the typical M31 liner, but has a liner with 10 flaps with "56/58" stamped in red on one of the flaps (see pic). Can any help me as to what I have?

    Nothing about it is right. Liner has no holes, liner band is something other than German, decal is a terrible fake.

    Thanks for the input. Looks unanimously fake. I took it back to the dealer and got my money back ($350). He still maintains it is authentic and says he can even get more money than what he let me have it for.
