Hello, Is this SS helmet cover a good one ? or made after the war ?

Seller say that the cover was field made. The cover is UV negative.

It's not a real "field made" cover, it's a horrible attempt at a normal one made using common poor quality late war oak fabric

Stuff like this is speculative only... most collectors wont touch it, regardless of anything that may even appear period original... I personally dont like this particular piece at all.
