    I take it that the shell is a reproduction then. I was sure that the decals were fake, but was not sure about the shell. Sorry I am not very knowledgeable in ww2 german helmets.

    Best regards Patrik

    Yes the shell is a repro, a chinese one, the most obvious giveaway being the shape of the airvents...

    Sadly, helmets like this will end up being museum exhibits in years to come, and the general public will "Ooh & Ahh" at them, never doubting their originality .......sigh
