    It was interesting to see you are showing it as a genuine decaled ss helmet.You must be very confident.The first thing strikes me is the shell is in very good condition ,and also the decal ,this can maybe be exsplained with it having an ss cloth cover on it.Im sure you understand when you put a helmet on the forum inevitably people will give their opinion on it.To be honest im a bit uneasy about the decal.The marks rubbing into the decal look like someone has done that,and its too consistent ,and the same.Thats my honest opinion, and i hope of course i am wrong,and ss decal exsperts reasure you its a good one!

    Can i ask if the strap has the ss aceptance stamp/.Im not saying without this its a bad one ,but maybe ss exsperts can confirm or other wise that an ss helmet has the strap usually with the ss aceptance stamp1

    helmets in Vg/mint condition aren't unusual to find , even in WSS and the one posted in the thread is still nice but in a combat used condition for me .
    for the chinstrap , actualy i only have 8 SS helmets but none ever had a trace of any SS stamp on !
    Above is one of mine

    The one i have with an aceptance stamp is a m35,and if pre 38 is when they where applied that would tie in.THE ANSWER TO ONE OF MY QUERIES OF THE SS ACEPTANCE STAMP IS SATISFIED.I asume then all m40 and 42 helmets straps wouldnt have this.sorry for shouting a little.

    I think you can find some examples I've posted before in this thread, that could give you some points about that
