Looks like a nice early example, love the patina.

I don't want to be the bearer of bad news but could you send photos of this helmet's profile and photos of the back? I have some concerns on this one.

John :(

I believe that this helmet is a copy made in England in the 1960's or 1970's. The stitching is incorrect, the vent holes in the spike are very small, the Wappen looks "fat", the spike has a weird taper, and the Kokarde looks too convex. Check the Kaiser's Bunker website and make a comparison. I can post photos of mine too, if you wish.

Sorry,
John :cry:

I agree, fake and probably artificially aged.

Total fake....heavily chemically aged in order to cover up it's "fakedness". Note the leather part of the chinstrap is dyed on both sides. :thumbsdown:
