I would agree and better photos would certainly help.

I don't agree about the price instead. The auction has closed at 225€, a very cheap price for an original DD helmet, even if in relic condition. You could buy one at this price from s russian site probably 10 years ago. now prices are much higher
Yes 100% agree with your opinion
