I know nothing about SS stuff, but didn't someone else post pictures of this helmet recently, with a different story attached? The bit of white string in the liner and the decal look very familiar. Or am I just having caffeine-withdrawal hallucinations again?

What story are you talking about or are you just clowning around ?There is no story other than the guy selling it and yes I did meet him at the show. I was aking if anyone thought the decal looked right ? Drink some more coffe and maybe you will remember where you saw the helmet last it would be helpful. If it was posted here it would be nice to know? If there auctually is another post of this helmet the serial numbers would be the same as this one but I highly doubt it.

I find your reply rather rude - don't be so impatient.

Post it at the Wehrmacht Awards Forum you will get better responses - or even better, invest some time and study the subject yourself

A different story doesn't imply or suggest anything rude either .Thanks for the helpful comments.
