    Default Help with Heer helmet

    Hi guys,

    I've been looking for a relic with a good decal for a while.
    This CKL m42 came up for sale, listed as a km helmet with field overpaint from Norway, but the decal seems like a Heer to me.

    I would really appreciate some help especially with the decal.

    Cheers, JW

    Am I correct in saying this is a Bigfoot decal?

    I may be off brother. But it's suspicious to me. Rust pits with paint over top of them is never a good sign. And the decal is brittle enough to chip indicating age and fraility but yet has what's looks like tooling/sandpaper scratching on the bottom right part of the shield w/o chipping? Also shiny un rusted steel around a bullet hole made 70+ years ago? Looks tarted up to me JMO. Best regards.

    This decal is a popular reproduction that "mimics" a Q bigfoot decal.

    You will not see an original Q decal on a CKL or any other manufacturer than a Q helmet

    Wow that was fast.

    Thanks a lot for the help, I have to admit I was leaning towards it being real...

    The hunt goes on I suppose.
