This one is crisp and seems to be in un-issued condition with only minor scuff wear to the exterior and some light handling marks. Typical NS decal application which was often higher up on the vent hole but in this case it is well centered with only a minor application flaw on part of the swastika which is also a commonly seen feature of late war NS M42 Luftwaffe helmets. Notice also how the talon of the eagle’s foot does not intrude into the white line of the leg of the swastika where he clutches it. That is the mark of it being an NS factory produced eagle and is found on no other maker. The finish is still very matte with no handling wear. The liner is as nice and unworn as they come. This is one which you will have a difficult time trying to upgrade and definitely generously priced.
