    i may be corrected on this by the more expienced collectors. but to me the decal looks ok to be a ET. variant?

    I don't collect relics so I don't know what to look for in "enhanced" relic and semi relic shells, but this one looks good to me. I don't see signs of cleaning around the decals. The only area that makes me scratch my head is the area at 7:00 on the runic decal, but other than that, the decals, or what is left of them, look like correct "Q" style transfers. All in all, I think it is a good Q M40 double decal SS helmet. Jim G.

    What I'm seeing is a semi relic Quist M40 with what appears to be relic decals but I daresay requests for more detailed photos will follow, the lot no/ will go someway to giving some more information

    Knocked about but hard to fake that finish ......... h'mm, two good SS finds in a few days, might just be a record?

    It's a Q. Correct Q decal, fakers haven't faked this style of Q yet with any accuracy, the party decal what remains is hard to say but it's not applied over the damage so I am comfortable saying this is a good Q DD M40 which are actually not all that rare, I've seen well over 20 maybe more and owned 3 or 4 at the same time.

    It's a Q.
    thanks what gives it that gold tint. is it the lacquer.

    You'll note the party decal is the same, I'd say it's more being in such poor condition due to the elements. That said these Q decals with age and storage conditions can turn a gross pee colored shade vs gold and I'd say that is a combination lacquer / storage issue. I find the "pee toned" Q decals a real visual turn off personally.

    I agree with Jim. Good Q for me as well. Looks like it maybe a double printed runic Q.
