This reproduction was an actual donation to a museum. It’s built on an ORIGINAL shell, but the sand-tan finish is post-war applied. This was sold, but confirmed to be a reproduction, in the last auction, and is now being offered as a reproduction. Here is the description from the previous auction:
This is quite an interesting piece, having been donated to a local museum and having never been in a collection. The museum does not display items like this, so they contacted me to de-access it (museum lingo for sell it). Note that the helmet was at some point a double decal, but both decals were removed at some time, and the eagle decal was actually hand-painted back on! Talk about field-ingenuity! Condition is reflected in the photos. Helmet is an ET66 and features a steel lot on the back interior rim. Looks to have been painted several times during the course of its combat career.
