Default Helmet cover , any chance?

This cover was on a found very nice SD early war FJ helmet found in a local house with a few other TR items , all original . This cover was on it. Never had any experience with these, was curious to know if it might be a field made or late war piece. Comments are appreciated.

First- wrong construction... it's a copy...
second- it doesn't look like it was on any helmet for a long time.

would you like to show that ''nice SD helmet ''?

I agree. Neither field made or an issue cover. And it certainly has not been on a helmet for very long; and only recently if so.

It's a fake.
