This one is an original M42 helmet made to look like it's been there, done that, by a reputable U.K. co that specialises in such things, this is only used as an example of how good a helmet can look, but is in fact a good process to make it in a used condition?


GERMAN WW2 MEDIC HELMET IT SEEMS THE TIME HAS STARTED FOR A LOT OF WW2 GERMAN MEDIC HELMETS TO APPEAR,TAKE EXTRA CARE AS THESE HELMETS ARE EXTREMELY HARD TO COME BY AND I MEAN GENUINE ONES AT THAT.GOOD TO SEE, BUT BEWARE THESE ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN AND AS MOST THINGS TODAY FAKE ONES CAN  AND DO LOOK ORIGINAL,IF SELLER HAS NO HISTORY  TO A HELMETS GENUINE STATUS? THEN IT IS VERY DIFFICULT FROM PICS TO DETERMINE THE VALIDITY OF THE HELMET,AS IT IS VERY EASY TO BE FOOLED .LOOKING AT THE ONES RECENTLY FOR SALE ON EBAY IT IS DIFFICULT TO TELL WHEN PAINTED WELL,SOME DONT PASS THE TEST AND LOOK RENOVATIONS.THE CROSS CAN APPEAR IN SEVERAL TYPES, TOP OF HELMET, FRONT SIDES AND BACK,ON TOP OR FRONT IT WAS CHOICE OF WEARER,THIN CROSS, WIDE CROSS,HAVE EVEN SEEN CHIN STRAP PAINTED WHITE,THE MOST COMMON CROSS IS THE ONE TO THE FRONT,  JUST ASK ENOUGH QUESTIONS AS TO IS IT GENUINE ITEM? ANY HISTORY? REMEMBER! A LOT OF MONEY WILL BE REQUIRED FOR AN ORIGINAL, SO WATCH BIDS ESPECIALLY STACK BIDDING FROM ZERO RATED BUYERS WHO WILL MAKE IT APPEAR THAT PLENTY OF BIDS GO IN WHICH MEANS GREAT INTEREST IN HELMET NOT ALWAYS SO!CERTAIN PARTS OF THE WORLD HAVE SEEN SOME DODGY HELMETS FOR SALE,BE ON YOUR GUARD!!!!!!!!! PAY ACCORDING TO THE HELMETS VALUE TO YOU! AND SOMETIMES YOU GET LUCKY BUT NOT VERY OFTEN.BUYING A FAKE ONE IS NOT A PROBLEM IF THAT IS WHAT YOU WANT OR CAN AFFORD.AS LONG AS SELLER STATES THE OBVIOUS? AND NOT THE "I'M NOT SURE IF IT'S ORIGINAL OR NOT" OR SOLD AS SEEN, NO RETURNS/NO REFUND, ASK QUESTIONS BEFORE YOU BID AS ALL SALES ARE FINAL,THEY,RE NOT!!! IF ITEM NOT AS DESCRIBED CLAIM THRO PAYPAL,AND IF IN DOUBT BID ACCORDINGLY AS YOU ARE BIDDING ON THE UNKNOWN..... (please indicate below if this has been of help)
