Went to a gun show today and found a German helmet. Wanted to see what you guys think. Was able to take photos, do not know much about helmets, but I do know the liner looks fake. Thanks for the help once again.

Looks like they put brown shoe dye on it to me.

Artificially aged liner for sure and the Adler decal shows some "interesting" damage that can only be seen on that decal.

The tricolor shows a strange discoloration on the bottom...

For me a no go.

Ya, I kind of had a feeling it was to good to be true. I noticed those problems with the decals as well but do not know much about how to tell fakes from real. But the shell looks original, along with the chin strap if I am correct.

In your opinion what is it worth? I know it is fake but would not make a bad display piece, if I remember correctly the guy wants only $300 for it. Thanks for all the help Panzer.

Yeah usually refurbs go for $300-$400...depending on the size of the shell and how they refurbished it.

I would say in the 400 range...If you want a nice one this guy does top shelf helmets.

All are original shells. https://alexanderandsonsrestorations.com/
