    I was lucky enough to find this unmodified Trubia Sin Ala at a a very fair price.
    Leather is dry and hard, but IŽd say it is the original liner (Black leather).
    Some rivets have been changed and the leather band has come loose from the helmet shell where the older rivets were (Low quality manufacture).
    It has not the welded front plate for the eagle, and It is covered by three layers of paint : Two different greys (pre war) and a bright green (Post war). I wonder what was the original paint.

    Untouched mint ones are quite rare and expensive for a SCW item. "Salty" ones, when find, go a lot cheaper but still are worth around 100€. Post war modified oness are cheap and you can find them easily for around 50€ or less.
    I like this one both because it was a real bargain and because it is battle worn...
