Sorry no good.
My toughts to. I'm guessing round bottom decal and artifically aged liner. Am I right?
Not the round bottom decal, this is a bad attempt at an NS decal and a fake liner. Note SE M35 helmets should almost always have CA Pocher decals and only a handful are known.
I've not seen this fake decal before.
In hand the decal has a very metalic look.
Krikke, as Doug states in one of his pinned threads, you have to have in hand experience with SS helmets. This is something he always mentions. I have owned most types of SS decals, so far, and physically handled two fat runes, so I consider myself to be fortunate to have this experience. Handling different types of original & reproduction SS decals is a must. Photos are great, but won't cut it alone, good luck.

Hi there,the SS professors have spoken!This is indeed a poor fake as Doug and Samir have already said.The liner is also a poor red dyed replacement,the chinstrap looks a modern replacement too.The naming in the skirt also looks rubbed down from left to right,so I would guess that's added post war to.As for the decal,the less said the better as it is a very poor NS attempt on the wrong manufacturer's shell,sorry, Leon.
