    Hy Guys!

    I'm thinking to purchase this Luftschutz Gladiator helmet, but I have a feeling about that it's liner is not the helmet's original liner. Am I right, or it's not a 100% original piece inside? I think the chinstrap is OK! Btw. the price for it is ~163€.

    I think the liner is a later fitting. Is there a decal on this one, the price is very high for one without a decal and an odd liner.

    Yes, it has a full complete decal on it's front side! I like the helmet itself, but the liner is odd. Waiting for another suggestions

    Not a style of liner I have observed. But not saying it's incorrect. So many variations of these LS liners. Would be nice to see pics of the entire helmet. Sometimes exterior condition vs. interior can give a clue if it's balanced as far as inside wear vs. outside wear & handling.

    Always best to show a helmet completely to get the best possible answers to your questions.

    an original. Note the lines in the bottom acorns of your example, they fall short, the bottom horizontal oakleaf ends, yours look pointy & not rounded. Possibly yours could be a different manufacturer.. but the example I posted is the accepted known original
