    I see a decal. I still don't get how they last and the rest of the paint and other parts don't. Nice set if you put them in a display case with the helmet on the corner facing down towards the ground.

    The decals are not just made of "paint". Without being an expert on decals i can say they are made of metals and other microscopic particles. I guess that's why they are preserved so well. It also depends on the soil they have been in.

    Some helmets we have dug up on the Eastern Front. Sandy soil and in river.

    Yes, there are remnants of the Wehrmacht decal. If You clean an old rusty helmet You will often find decals. I think it is because the decal stoped rusting for some time.
