    Its not in the best of shape, but I agree still nice helmet price is probably right, would not pay more than opening bid due to she shape its in.
    But thats just me. The history of zimmerit is nice though even if it had a somewhat placebo effect on the Germans.

    It does help to post pictures in case it gets pulled, so i have copied the photographs for evaluation.

    All I will say is........ all is not what it seems, and caution is advised.

    There are numerous examples of Zimmerette coated helmets in photographs of the period, and a few in collections.

    This would not be one that I would want to own

    The greatest ingredient in zimmerit is Barium Sulfate(40%). If a gas flame is applied to even a small amount of zimmerit it should produce a light green flame. There's your proof.

    John has it right. This certainly appears to be a painted over relic shell. Note the rusted wear on the leading edges of the skirt.
