I don't trust it.

These were alway's stamped, ET64.
Not a lot were made originally, and only by Eisenhuttewerk Thalen, ET, and in size 64.
If it was an original, price should be way higher.

The brow plate hangers are for a size 66 with the single step. The tubular bolts at the temples
A size 64 bolt would have about an 1/8th of an inch step at the base it.

So who ever made this started with the wrong sized helmet.

That is totally wrong.

M18 Cut out like what coert said, it's size 64 only. Only ET produced it.

I have a M18Cut out. Will take pics when time permits.
