    Hi, not one i would want, i cannot zoom in on the decal but it does not look great, mis-applied at best, but i suspect it is an out and out fake. The paint work to the helmet is also very "patchy" and appears to have been varnished over. Leon.

    The decal looks to lack detail but it's hard to tell without a really good close-up.
    Here is a mis-applied NS luft as comparison.

    Also, i notice the re-enforced aluminium liner band - i'd expect a steel liner band on an M42.
    I don't like the varnish either.

    Well...the OP was ?? the decal which I believe is a poorly applied original NS bird. Could not enlarge to confirm but that's what I see so far.
    Better pics needed & what is the maker ?

    Depends on the price. The helmet appears to have been "varnished" or polished. The liner is suspect as far as being the original one installed. As stated...it's an aluminum band which most likely is not the original. These issues must be considered before purchase & the price should reflect these.

    I am with David on all points. The birds on NS lids for some reason are often mis applied. The bird looks alright, but with the other liabilities pointed out by the others in my opinion I would pass. Jim G.
