    That's one photo , can you do an entire session with a good decal close-up , interior photos and also list maker + lotnr.

    Guys, I had this Helmet sent to Kelly Hicks for authentication and he said it's authentic. I can post more pics when I get home but on page 1 there are a bunch.

    Good for you , good luck with it. Pictures in this topic are not good enough to make a call. Unfortunately Kelly has made mistakes in the past , only recently a dealer had to take a helmet back with a KH cert.

    You'd want more than 1 person liking this helmet to be safe for resale later on.

    What decal type did Kelly say this was ?
    Also you photos are blurry so pretty much useless , you have to activate your camera's macro function or shoot from a steady base , some books for example. And very important shoot with enough light , best outside.

    A good photo is sharp. Like this , then you can better see the structure and design.

    Q style decal on a Q66 shell, I don't have a macro lens for this camera and my iphone is not coming through when it comes to close-focusing. I'll see if I can pick one up today just to use for this then return it

    Well from your pictures it most definitely is not a Q decal. You'd expect the left rune to sit below the break on the left by 1 mm.
    I don't see that , it looks like it is even with the break.

    Yeah it does look like a few pics are level, but in others and in person it def. is below the shield break. Both Mr. Hicks and SSamir said it appears to be a legit Q decal, and on most of the pictures you can clearly see it is in fact about 1mm below the shield break. I'm pretty certain this decal is real, but I appreciate your skepticism as it helps us learn
