    That USB microscope does take a good close pic. What does it look like and how does it work Rene?

    I first learn't about it from this thread Waffen SS M42 CKL64
    Here's a shot of my real SS decal, CSI stuff but common sense in this detail
    It's just like a web cam - it has lights and a focus adjuster for magnification - this one is a cheapy one but still works well

    I pioneered the use of USB microscopes several years ago, buying a 400x power Celestron in 2008. Here are some SS Pocher fakes I have uncovered since.

    Here is more background

    Caution must be observed however, the knowledge doesnt come with the box, it took me 3 years and the examination of over 100 SS helmets of the various decal patterns to get a feel for what to look for as well as the examination of many many fakes.

    The caveat is, real ones have certain fingerprints under high levels of magnification, as do fakes. Without the requisite foundation to work from however you cannot tell the difference between the two so use and post with caution.

    That said, I do not believe they can fake decals to the 200x level.

    Your decal Reneblacky shows the scrubbed nature of the decal as you can see much of the pulver missing and the cellulose base exposed. Some rusting also occuring as a result. I will try to post up some photos of USB of various decals, its pretty cool.

    Rene, thats awesome!

    I highly recommend you make your pics much bigger than that. Go to your upper left hand screen and click on "options", "preview size" then click on the desired size such as 1200X980.

    Doug, you stand correct and this is why I bought a lot of "beater" SS helmets if you recall. I want to study and compare the construction of the shield, pulvar, sharpness of the runes, construction etc. I would like to study their unique characteristics and compare them as there are different makes of SS decals. This is no easy task and will take a long time to nail it, but will be rewarding.

    Like to thank you, Doug, for introducing this ingenious idea into the hobby!

    kindest regards
    Samir
