    Default Winter camo m40, opinions?

    This helmet is on eBay and is asking 250 for it, he is selling it as a original barn find but to me it looks like its been painted with spray paint as you can see on the inner skirt the over spray and new rust and not near enough wear and the paint looks new in places! The shell itself looks original and so does the liner. What do you guys think of it?Click image for larger version.

    Yes, that is a postwar paint job. Best to move along. Ebay is not the place to find something like this, see the pinned thread on how to find a good helmet in the SS helmet section. Your time is best spent elsewhere.

    For 250 you can't complain m8! It's better than a fake for that much

    Peace!
    It is a fake.

    Shell, liner and chinstrap look original at least. Paint aside for $250 it's not bad. A few hours with some cotton balls and a bottle of acetone and it might clean up 1/2 decent.
