Original German helmet with a nice condition liner and an original cut down Luftwaffe chin strap. The inside paint is original. The outside seems to have been coated with some sort of brownish clear coat like a varnish or something. The Luftwaffe adler is not original. There are a few small spots where the coating is chipped and original paint can be seen underneath (like were the swastika used to be). I don't know if this could be saved in some way or if the outside just needs stripped and repainted (in some places the coating chips off with a light scratch). The helmet likely had no decal originally. It smells a bit like smoke and maybe that sweetish maple scent that often accompanies old leather. Shell size 64.
