Default Pickelhaube - original or not

Hello,
Maybe salty, but the question is: real or fake? Opinions welcome.

Original - although not sure about the chin strap.

Without doubt a fair dinkum M15! Nothing wrong with it, even the chinstrap seems original. It seems though that the strap in a few spots begins to show some white mould, but that may be due to the pic rather than reality. However, if it's beginning mould, you might want to treat it with alcohol which is a fine mould killer. I know: my stomach may have ulcers, but definitely not mould

In short: you've got a good helmet there!
