Are a german paratrooper helmet and a german M18 cavalry ear cut out
The first helmet maybe without any liner, decal seems original, and the second could have not an original liner and decal
Both helmets looks as originals, but better inspect them

Thanks for the quick response. He is asking 425 for each helmet. Is the price right or too high?

Both would be a "steal" if real.... However, can't tell anything from these pictures.

John G. is right
The helmet M18 has a lug incorrect for this model, then also distrusts of other helmet
Another replica helmet with the same lug
