IMO, it is impossible to know for sure what took place with this helmet. Some could be wartime paint, some post war, or all bad. Bolts replaced or swapped. Certainly not all era IMO.

A French coin from 1943 makes perfect sense. Both the 1st and 4th FJDs were in France before being sent to Italy as the 1st Fallschirm Korps in 1944.

In addition to 2 of the rivets being different from the 3rd one, why are the 2 without any real wear? Just for starters. More photos of details are needed, but lots of concerns here.

I agree. I see Dennis all the time at shows and full-auto shoots. I agree with the "watch the auctions" thoughts. IMO, and some will not like it, the full-auto market is artificially jacked up (I...

Thanks Andy and Mike.

The 1.8 grams equals about 27 grains, so that make sense for a 6mm Flobert. I have seen "Gezogen" spelled out in a number of rifles as well. Always wondered how the "BUG"...

No, the shell size has nothing to do with the date of manufacture. Most pre-war DDs fall within that lot number range.
