    Default M40 SD SS @ auction

    I was browsing some online auction sites, and I came across this helmet. These are the best pics they posted, and the auction is today (Saturday) so I don't think I could get better pics on short notice. I'm just curious if this one looks good or not. Thanks.

    Terrible photo of the decal (intentional perhaps?) but to me the left rune looks fatter than the right one.

    Maybe it's just the light, but the rust seems too fresh to me, especially on the visor. I agree that the left rune looks fatter, though I know nothing of decals, I'm only commenting on the rust.

    unfortunately these are the best photos I have. I'm not bidding, just throwing this out there for discussion

    I would love to see clear close-ups for sure. Try and ask the auctioneer to take clear pics, you might get lucky.

    Without extreme close ups of the actual decal i would be very careful on this item, but of course the sellers price could also give some indication if the item has a chance but again that is no sure fire way of proving authenticity

    Gentlemen that is the sign of a good Quist SS decal. ;-)

    This was posted on another forum, my comment there was the same as here, it appears to be a Q and should be on a Q shell. If not run.
    Someone thinks its real as I understand it sold for $8000. I am now packing up my helmet collection to bring to an auction if those are the prices.
