    Not really my area, but I havent seen any fake French helmets, its always been M18's and other German helmet fakes that I've seen. It looks ok to me, but I think this is for someone thats an expert.

    Thanks

    Looks like a normally Adrian M 26, but is'nt a general helmet, IMO the price for that one must be in around of 80 eur

    The helmets themselves are not faked. But I believe that the various types of insignia used on the front are copied.

    Sorry I cannot help more than that.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Most French general officer's helmets had a braided leather chinstrap, not a cheap one like this.

    The helmet seems very much thrown about. Not something most generals did with their property. I wonder whether the grenade is a Gendarmerie emblem and not army?

    Cheers,
    Emile
