    Default SS Helmet

    One of my first items.

    I had this in my introduction post but thought it would be better to post it here with better Pictures of the decal.

    I received a box of items Im trying to figure out if they areSS HelmetSS HelmetSS HelmetSS HelmetSS HelmetSS HelmetSS HelmetSS HelmetSS HelmetSS Helmet original or not.

    This is an SS helmet. It Looks like the stamps are original but I read through some Posts and it seems there are a ton of fakes.

    Please advise if this is a real SS decal helmet or not.

    Thank you,
    Chris

    Sorry mate but that is not an Original SS decal.
    You would like to have a EF or hkp marked M42 or a ET of ckl marked M42 SS helmet.

    The decal is a reproduction & the exterior paint appears post war applied.
    Helmet shell & liner are original. NS 64 stamped on the side, it left the factory with a decal most likely, either a Luft. eagle or a Heer decal. I cannot tell what color the interior paint is to determine which though the paint looks feldgrau more than blue.

    Paint really looks dodgy. As the guys said, bad stuff

    I would trade all I know for half of what I have left to learn.

    Just to add. NS helmet + SS decal = Fake.

    Possibly a 'round bottom' fake decal. The lower-most area
    of the shield is scratched at the exact spot where
    a pointed tip would be.........

    I hope you won't be left out of pocket on it Lakeman81. If it was sold as original recently then hopefully you can get your cash back.

    Hi, just adding my total agreement with the fella's, sadly that is not a genuine SS decal, it's trying to be an ET, but is on the wrong maker of helmet anyway. Leon.
