    Ah I misunderstood, yes a Quist decal is found on Q helmets. Layering if you mean by the substructure yes, but some fakes also have this substructure, but fail in other areas like graphics or pulver composition or ink. I was thinking you meant a Q decal has some unique layering sorry.

    The first picture of this one didn't look right to me, but a close up of the decal is very convincing. The decal remnants are clearly around the pitted areas, not inside them. I would bet it is a good one.

    Yes I agree and give this one the benefit of the doubt.

    Any history of where it was found Dan ?
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    The first question I asked the seller Paul - but they are lax in the communication department!!
    It was in the UK, seller said he had it for some time so I figure the back story is lost, pity.....

    If I can do any sharper images I will but I understand there is not a lot to go on ( that's why it was cheap I guess - monetary value of these lids seems to be exponentially proportional to decal survivability. )

    Thanks all, I'm happy with what I have.
    Cheers, Dan

    Sorry guys - here are some more photos of it outside ( I have a flexi-day ) and I just HAD to go take some more pix of it.
    Hard to photograph but the field grey / steel grey still stands out and the decal is as solid as a rock ......I love it! ( fool that I am )

    Cheers Dan
