    Post war M1 restored.

    Ive contacted the seller about this but im sure he'll have some bull of a story as to why it cant be the same helmet after all apparently he's owned it for over 20 years even though i owned it back in 2009

    It's wise to always mark replica items in some way to show that they are not original; for two reasons made evident here. First, this is a very well made helmet in my opinion, 50+ years from now it is going to show natural wear, and might turn out out to be dangerously convincing. Second, you never know who will end up with the replica item in the future. In this case a total idiot inherited the piece and is using it to STEAL money from an unsuspecting collector. Shame on the seller, he deserves a swift kick in the groin

    It's another of those "genuine"101 st's that ebay seems to have cornered the market in!!!! I never knew Mr Ebay went to war with this unit and they all kept their lids to sell on his site to help him out in times of trouble!Well done Nickd in giving us the heads up,you made a good job of this one.

    I've contacted ebay about a few fakes, they never do anything!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    the helmet & liner them selves are post war German made M-1 style set up its not even front seamed that was cut in to it by the guy that created it for me. the liner has been painted to give the look of an early ST CLAIR liner which on closer in inspection would be evident that's its not anyone who's done a bit research will spot this helmet as a fake straight away if not then they should be asking questions about the item before bidding on it any markings that could have been added to show its a repro could easily have been cover up if the seller is determined to rip someone off.

    Well, Nick, I am not sure who to believe. After all, this helmet has been in his collection for over TWENTY YEARS, LONG BEFORE BAND OF BROTHERS!!! I am a believer. By the way, how much is he asking for that old bridge in New York again? Or that wonderful waterfront land in Florida?
