Paul, maybe the original owner of the mask had some huge bulbus warts on his nose
I understand your comments but please take into account this isnt just regular "Zelt material. It is only one side printed like the WH splinter helmet covers and from the photos it looks like original fabric. This one side printed fabric is really difficult to come by. If this was made from zelt fabric then I could understand that detail raising more red flags against these masks. We've all seen many items made from cut up zelts. Im not saying they are original or agree that they're post war produced just to fool collectors. Just feel that they need better scrutiny before discounting them.
Overlord, please post some large photos of the mask so we can see the details better. Whether that will clear up the debate over these masks, I dont know, but it might help give some providence to them.
