    So I bought this helmet maybe a year ago, I thought the decal was interesting that it was chopped off alittle low giving the eagle a bad hair cut, (or Feather cut?) LOL thought I'd share with you. The helmet is a NS62 M42.Heer decal, Mr Adler got him a flat top hair cut!Heer decal, Mr Adler got him a flat top hair cut!Heer decal, Mr Adler got him a flat top hair cut!Heer decal, Mr Adler got him a flat top hair cut!

    Well I took the previous pictures and realized there is what looks like a bad spot on the left edge of the decal where you can see I guess is the silver backing?Heer decal, Mr Adler got him a flat top hair cut!Heer decal, Mr Adler got him a flat top hair cut!

    Very odd. Looks like the left side of the eagle's wing is set much higher than the right. Somewhat distorted & does not appear to be due to poor application.

    Hi, certainly an odd one! The silver flash down the left hand side looks as though the decal folded over slightly on application. Certainly not one put on with any due care and attention. Leon.

    Beside the standard reply (study the threads here). The best resource is Ken N's book - The Helmet Decals of the Wehrmacht.

    It will give you most of what you need to know. After that it comes down to lots of self study.
