    They were used during the war. I have no idea how to prove if one is real or not.

    One being worn in photo is a field made mask. The SS mask was apparently made in small quantity.

    The one in the auction is a fake POS but , will keep doctor lector from eating your face off...

    IWM has some limited info - an improvised item, not standard issue.... BTW if you are ever in London, this is a worthwhile stop for sure. Budget several hours.
