    Anytime I see decal inside deep pits it gives me pause. I'm not a fan of this helmet.

    A bit of artistry going on there Fabe - give it a miss I'd say .......

    This helmet has been scrubbed quite a bit to clean it up. Pictures are pretty low rez so when I enlarge I cant make out much detail.

    But I do see that it is not a full decal. The border of the decal give the appearance that the decal was painted around at some point and I see green paint dots on what appears to be on top of the decal.

    So while I too don't like the pitting, I'm leaning towards it being OK (on the assumption that a faker would not take a relic, put a decal on and THEN paint around it and then scrub it down. Why not just slap a decal on a relic and then just scrub it without painting it). But happy to be proven wrong as always. We are all learning.
