    Hi all,
    It's me again bothering you guys with questions, hope you don't mind,
    That you think about this M35 helmet paint, I wouldn't be worried about helmet it's self just the paint and decals, do I think correct thinking it's too good to be true, seems oddly too good and should decals not be a bit higher as they seems to be low, Just over all would I be right things someone painted and put decals after, apologies I have zero knowledge on decals and authentication of things
    Thanks a million for all help guys,

    I'm not a fan of the decals or the fresh paint job. The stahlhelm meisters will be along to dissect this one for you.

    The SS decal seema too centre to the vent if I'm not mistaken they should be a bit back then in the middle of it

    Give this one a miss and invest your money in some good German helmet reference books. Study them well before you consider buying any more helmets.

    Cheers,

    If it’s to good to be true it usually is, as the saying goes. Sometimes you can get lucky, but unfortunately not the case with this one. As Steve said, arm yourself with reference books and knowledge. The knowledge you gain from them will far outweigh the small outlay. And don’t worry about posting helmets here in the helmet section! The guys are here because they love looking at helmets.

    And in the meantime, have a look at Schwerpunkt’s website and in particular the SS section for some classic original examples.

    I am always sad to see someone taking a chance on a SS decaled helmet. They are so often faked. You should consider sticking with Heer or Luftwaffe. Neil

    I would steer clear of this helmet. The paint and decals look too new. As Steve and Andy have already said, I would recommend studying up on and learning more about helmets before spending hundreds if not thousands of dollars. There are many great books and resources online. Good luck on your helmet hunting journey!

    Cheers,

    Looks like someone has gone around the liner with sandpaper in an attempt to age it.
