    Default M42 single decal SS Helmet.What about this one?

    Now this one we're not too sure about.
    The paint seems to be too green for my liking and has no real age other than usual scratchs and rub marks.The liner has been replaced and 2 of the 3 rivets clearly show they have been re-bent but have the washers attached.The decal shows age but is it a real one or a good fake? I guess the big question here is could it be a wartime refurbishment or just another postwar effort.

    Let me know what you think of this guys:-)

    Thanks guys.
    Well i'm not going to trade that one from him and to make his day worse i will have to tell him his big dollar lid is a fake too.OOOH that going to hurt but just as well he'll have sombody to settle him down over a beer or two because he will need it. Not sure what advice i can give him there other than maybe sell it to some guy he does'nt like very much (not me i hope)

    Hi Tom, try and get him to seek a refund. Failing that he is stuck with it or sell it for what it is and put it down to experience.

    Cheers, Ade.
