Luftwaffe Fire Department Helmet Decal Opinion Please

Hello,

This is the best photo I have received of the eagle decal on a Luftwaffe Fire Department Helmet that is for sale. I don't believe the decal is original. I would appreciate opinions.

Regards,
Tim

Hello,

Thank you for the response. The portion that just doesn't look right to me is the head and especially the eye. Maybe overthinking this decal?

Thanks again,
Tim

it is a design not found on combat helmets , the pics are bad. But it has a good chance.

Interesting information!

But the helmet itself is repainted.

What kind of decal is on the other side?

Thanks for showing!

Did anyone have an idea, from what time and with what order the white stripe had to be on those helmets?

Hello,

One more photo. Found what appears to be an LBA stamp on one of the fingers.
