    Recent repaint and re liner job IMHO. It looks like a relic under the brim but the paint is perfect, Hmmm I don't think so.

    Do you think that it is an Original German Helmet under all of the paint? Why would someone mess with it?

    Yes, almost certainly an original M42 shell. Why you ask, because a relic shell with no liner is worth 50 bucks, an original sand camo is worth a hell of a lot more, maybe a grand or more.

    Because the textured paint is in perfect condition whilst the underside of the rim has rust pitting holes visible. the liner looks wrong as well, the colour, the seam stitching etc. Spend time studying other threads and get some good books before attempting to buy German helmets IMO.

    The leather liner looks like it is too small for the liner band, it seems like it has been stretched to fit?
