    This,I was told, is an original helmet from Germany.I'm not questioning the helmet itself,but the markings. I was told by the reputable seller it was worn by a Canadian assisting the German war effort. Has anyone heard of anything like this or seen a helmet with such markings?
    Thanks!

    I think some industrious soldier had a few extra decals so he decided to spruce up his war prize. Neat though.
