    Geelong - do you have photos or a link for your bad police M42? I'd like to study it. Do you still have the helmet or was it refunded?

    well when the fakes are discovered the sentiment does run hot.

    i do not collect helmets. and i am by no means expert in them at all.

    but i have been around here for some time and i have the greatest respect for our helmet experts. i read the threads and you can not be but impressed thoroughly by the knowledge our gentlemen in this area of interest display. (DougB, although i have never said it, i do read your contributions and my hat's off to you)

    i would just like to add the comment that i have done business with eMedals on certainly more than one occasion and this business on the "medals" side of things. this is something i do know. and considering the volume this guy does i've been pleased with the fact that i certainly have not been "burned" or seen much, if anything, awry as it concerns medals. now my memory is not perfect and i may not remember a fake that i have seen listed, but sitting here i do not recall much in that vein and again... considering the volume i always felt he ran an operation with due care.

    helmets? i would never deign to disagree with our experts here. as i have said, i have been around here on a daily basis for some time and i am fully appreciative of the expertise you helmet guys are possessed of. in this hobby, we police ourselves. it's a good and necessary thing. it's a thing i applaud.

    but i did feel i might add that my personal experience within my realm of expertise has, with eMedals, been a good one.

    Thank you! Did you have a close up of the eagle? If not no problem. Guess it didn't help they used a border less decal on an M42. Big red flag there.

    I helped? Damn. I can't remember a damn thing anymore! lol

    Regardless of the current helmet fiasco, I, also, have to agree with Tempelhof. Of all my dealings with eMedals, I have always been more than satisfied and have gotten some very noteworthy pieces from them. Barry Turk has always treated me quite well. It would be a sad thing to see them damaged by this situation. Their inventory includes some medals and collectables that simply can not be found elsewhere. I have never sought to purchase a Helmet from them and am unlikely to do so in the future for the reason that helmets are not what I occasionally peruse through their stock for, is all. At any rate, the suspect helmets have been removed right away when attention was pointed to them and this is what one would hope to see given this occurrence. If such things continue in the future is another thing altogether, but for now, I would hope that the heat cools down and people allow them to either prove themselves true or otherwise.

    A while back i got done with a dd42 police helmet. that also had a off center party shield.
    That's the exact same police helmet. Exact same fake party decal. A collector sent me a pic of his transitional SS tonight. Same fake runic decal. So there's another one exposed. Collector new it was this decal too, a good thing.

    Barry or Michael should post their sold helmets identified here as bad, for other opinions. Bad helmets should be refunded.
