    Came across these two helmets for sale and was wondering what you guys think of them? My gut says they're fake, but I've been wrong before. Thanks.

    Hello

    I think the top one is a fake, the decal has a round bottom; bad, in my opinion.

    I agree with Chris. The round bottom decal gives it away immediately. I am a country mile away from being a lid expert, so I shall leave further comment to my esteemed colleagues, and enjoy the learning experience in the process. Gotta love this forum!

    They both have bad decals.
    I also think the shell are post-war Norvegian RE.
