Hello.  I just bought a Luftschtuz helmet.  Based on the photos, can you tell if it is original?

Any information about the helmet would be useful.

Thank you.  Linas

Hello Linasl,

the resolution of the photos is not too good - I can't say whether the shell was repainted. The shell itself looks original (you could do a research on the RL number (which I can't read either) to find out which firm made the helmet. The next problem I have are the rivets - they look shiny in the pics (what they shouldn't be). So it could be that an original shell was repainted and refurbished with a new interior but without better photos I can't tell.

There are many originals here:  http://www.warrelics.eu/google.php?cx=partner-pub-8434277705306939%3Amw1zup-hyt0&cof=FORID%3A9&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=gladiator+helmet&sa.x=0&sa.y=0&siteurl=www.warrelics.eu%2Fforum%2Fcloth-headgear%2F&ref=www.warrelics.eu%2Fforum%2F%3Fs%3Db8d48a80dc11e029d8573104fd371a7a&ss=2845j616817j16

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
