    Yeah ..... whew, looks like someone oversprayed the helmet with old nitrocellulose lacquer that has yellowed.

    Cheers, Dan

    Most likely yes, its the only logical explanation IMO.

    I think it looks good.....and the runes being there is not necessarily a bad thing.. I'm sure there's lots of reasons why a resistsnce fighter would have left it there!!

    I hate to rain on your parade Danmark but Samir is right, that is the old round bottom fake decal, fairly convincing until you learn to recognize the little bugger. It totally breaks down under a powerful loupe or digital magnification. Runes are much too high in the shield, incorrect and offset break and incorrect shield are the graphic problems with it. Then there is the construction problems. Sorry my friend.

    PS the decal has also been sanded, that's the wear.

    Like said previously..."it wasnt advertised as an ss lid " and wasnt very costly, so no loss here, IMO. Besides..gives the shell a nice look, and isnt a completely terrible fake, as it looks nicely aged. I say, "CHEERS"!

    Thanks Doug & co,
    No worries - as I normally stay right away from SS stuff and paid a relic price for it there was no real parade to rain on
    I actually applaude the effort someone went to and pity them for getting so little money for it!
    But jeez, the sanding you speak of is good work - you'd stuff a dozen attempts up before you got a job like this one.
    I do appreciate your appraisal - and a guy at work has a USB microsope camera - so just for sh*ts & giggles, I'm gonna take some real close-ups of the sanding.
    later, Dan

    Lækker hjelm du har fået fat i der

    The danish resistens dident remove the decals, they were just used as they was!

    Take closeups of the runes edges and both breaks at 20 and 200 times too. ;-)

    Actually there are far better fake wear jobs out there than this one, and far better fake decals as well.

    OK, here it is. I always save odd looking SS decals in my computer for study.

    I'm confused, so round bottom Pochers like this are OK but ET ones are not???
