its a real german helmet with a bullet hole for sure.. i could be mistaken, but i beleive my grandfather said he saw the soldier shot....i could be wrong.
the helmet got very rusty cause my grandma made him keep all his war keepsakes out in a shed
the hat is also his service hat.
the helmet is very small. i fear, if this soldier was in this helmet when shot, he was likely a teenager.
i'll talk to my uncle when i get a chance and see if he knows the scoop.
