For me its a painted relics.The air vets have been caulked and those chinstrap ''rings'' aren't real
Not even german. Probably Chilean or some other nation.
No rivet holes for the liner either.
Worth $20, not $200.

Thank you guys, I am in awe of your expertise.
Run Forrest Run!!!!!!! as fast as you can away from this helmet and don't look back .
Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.
Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!
It does have liner holes but it looks like they were welded up along with other places
Hi, this one is of no value whatsoever as a collectable piece , the cammo is certainly not period and the shell is a welded mess. Leave it well alone even at $2.00, the postage stamp bought to mail it will be worth more!! Leon.

im trying to comprehend if it was a correct configuration how the liner would of been held in position ,the other members have summed this stahlhelm up well ,my other observation is the final top coat was black if this was an original application the colour would denote a civic or firemans helmet ,pehaps this was somebody's attempt at replicating one ,who knows
P-U! A really bad looking shell. Piling on with the execution squad here. NH
It would make a nice pot plant holder if it had a few drainage holes in the dome.
