    Well, if so SSamir, it wasnt sold as an ss helmet. So no worries IF fake that is..The wear is absolutely amazing . although I do see a minor thing..the rounded bottom of the shield. Im no ss decal expert so dont take my word for it.

    You have "ET" style runes on a "Q" shell. Look closely at the first rune. It's lining up evenly with the break of the shield and its definitely no Pocher as the runes are first pattern in a Pocher and not second like this one is.

    Yes, I did forget to mention the round bottom part of the decal which is another red flag.

    Hi SSamir, I didn't say it was a Q - I can't read the stamping - I always thought Q's had bigger vents on them??
    And I can see the "roundness" to the bottom but then I have seen REALLY rounded decals so I am still of an open mind.
    If the seller had listed it a "elite" or "XX" ( as most seem to ) then he could have got heaps more than the measly hundred bucks I got it for. The guy is not going to make it as a faker going about things this way!

    Guys, you have to see the overall wear on it .... SOOOO convincing that if its a fake decal, then it was applied decades ago and the lid left to weather - man, you have to see it first hand to get what I mean. If this is what fakers can do then "we be in big trubble"

    Hi Dan,

    I didn't say you said it was a "Q". Just a misunderstanding there. =) I'm going by the pics provided that it is a "Q" shell (at least to my eyes). I'm almost certain its a "Q" shell. The vent holes are very convincing and even if it was an ET shell, the decal is still not convincing i'm afraid, but that's just my opinion. Lets wait for a much more experienced SS man. Lets wait and see what Doug says, I could be wrong, you never know. =)

    kind regards
    Samir
