May I know what's wrong on this one?
Fake decals or it's crap just because the conditions are bad?

Better pics are needed but it looks like a good one but in rusty and relic conditon. Easy to find many similar examples from Russian Federation sellers at same price.

I agree with Peiper. In my opinion it can ba a good one. The problem are the pics! It happened the same to me with some of my helmets, bought from a russian dealer (the good fellow Spin Asafov, RIP). When I posted them on a forum, I got many negative feedbacks as the pics were probably not that good. Then, I took the same helmets to a militaria fair here in Italy, and the same guys that had said they were fake after a direct examination admited their fault and changed their mind!
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
