Hello, I recently purchased this helmet and would like to hear thoughts on the authenticity of this helmet. Thanks Jim

Hi Jim these photos are less than ideal. Maybe upload some more high res ones of the decals particularly the red “Hall” one itself.  Also more of the helmet exterior along with the maker and size (for example ET64). Looks like the interior is blue which is a good sign as lots of these were made from Luftwaffe helmets. Regarding the decals someone will assist you. Know zero about them. I will say Liner doesn’t match exterior of the interior but Could still be a good one. Standby for more opinions  These are faked heavily being that they are such rarities

So here’s the one on Ruptured Duck and ol’ Billy Boy is asking $26500 USD

I don’t know anything about these but wanted to add these as reference

Additional Information:

The helmet definitely passes the "Smell test". Size 62. M-35 Luftwaffe helmet

Liner was never removed as far as I can tell, pins tight and not messed with.

Liner is B & C Litzmannstadt 1943

I'll try to post better pics

Welcome.

Sorry..no . Edges --> saw tooth edge = modern print.

plus low quality graphic details (compare the sculptures for instance with the original Panzerheld posted)

Hope you didn't pay a premium price for it.

Appreciate your assessment!

Paid $300.00

That price should be a clue as to whether it is real or not.  Agree with what has been said..... all bad, not really close to quality of original decals and shell/paint/liner all look funny.  At least you didn't get burnt too badly!

Cheers,

Terry

I figured at $300.00 I'd take a gamble..

Appreciate the info!

Yes, as Sysyphus has mentioned, those extra photos you provided clearly show the Sawtooth Edges of the fake decals

Terry mentioned the shell etc . . . and he has a very keen eye.

$300 is obviously a low risk to take but highlights that it is nothing more than a replica and a poor one compared to the original I found online

Merry Christmas and please keep sharing your collection.

A no brainer with the bad interior paint , clearly replaced liner. Not even worth paying 300$ for.
