I know this is probably been covered (I didn't see it though).... Would a decal for a m16 helmet with a 'notch cut out' ..for lack of a better word..have the notch close to being around the large vent bolt ? I mean rather than centered directly under the vent bolt . I searched Google but couldn't find a original picture. Thanks.

If this is a "decal" that you have seen on an M16 I would put the decal in the realm of a fantasy design. Never seen anything close in more than 50 years of collecting. Regarding the general question of notching a "decal" for an M16, with the exception of KM helmets the Germans did not use decals on their WWI helmets (there were some hand painted insignia used during WWI such as the Foot Guard shields) so no, they did not "notch" helmet insignia to fit around the vent lugs.

The notch you refer to is a cut out on a shield, it's designed to fit around the knights neck and side of face, it's nothing at all to do with helmet vents!...
