You were warned about your language a few days ago. You will note that the other members of the site don't need to swear or use bad language. The reason is because it is not allowed. This is your last warning on the matter.
No-one wants to read it and knowing how old you are makes it worse. You do not need to use such language and it does not make you an adult so please stop it.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
Bas a canted SS decal is quite normal in particular on M42 models. I know who owned this one and I know who fished it out of the woodwork and Kelly recently sold it (no it was not mine). Before you start threads warning people about fakes make sure you know the subject matter well, otherwise your best to post it as a question - is this a fake - than saying - this is a fake - and then speculating as to why. Good pieces get ruined reputations because of speculative posts by people who do to know the subject matter at hand.
Learn through questioning not condemnation.
No need to apologize but the title of the thread indicates it is a bad helmet which it is not. Whether the seller is legitamite or not remains to be seen. I would suggest this title if you are unsure if it is real ; "Opinions sought on this SS helmet" , and in your post feel free to state your opinion so others may comment.
How it stands now the title of this thread is leading a reader to an assumption that it is bad, and others who do not know the subject matter may agree just for the sake of agreement and the next thing you know the seller has a "bad" helmet because it got a poor forum review - by people who are not well versed on the subject matter.
Again, ask a question not make a statement. Then a more objective conversation can be had about the item up for discussion and the opportunity is there to learn.
Not a bother, just trying to help is all.
