    The first shot of the Heer decal threw me for a minute! Nice relics.

    So far I'm not liking the look of decals, nor the fact that they are on an M40.

    okay - better pictures
    Only adjusted brightness level and slight sharpening to help
    Plus a closeup- hope this helps
    Heer decal looks coated -Shellac?
    Disappears on an angle.
    Didi not know double 40's were rare. Would be happy if one decal was original as it can still go in collection as a 40 -
    have a 35 same condition

    Sorry I'm not a fan but the photos leave much to be desired in the way of gaining any real opinion either way. Both have been sandpapered, one huge red flag.

    i dont like that heer decal looks very similar to the fake decals that can be bought over the net now. the feathers have that rounded look

    Although I still don't like it, the decal looks like a "big foot". That would suggest that the shell should be a Quist. Judging by the big air vents, it looks to me like a possible Q shell. Unfortunately, the maker's mark is probably gone, along with the easy verification of that.

    What's the shell maker? It looks like it might be an ET to me.

    there is a marking imprint- faint in rust there is a A- will try to get a clear shot
