M42 SS to check

Article about: Hi Guys, First time posting in this section. Now this lid isnt mine but what do you think of it? Rear marked with a light stamp, I can see a K 6, so I would say CKL 66 and lot number again l

    As has been said its a fake CA Pocher and the personalization is suspect as well I imagine. Compare the print to the CA Pocher in the reference section closely and you'll see critical issues with the decal on the M42 including very sharp edges and rounded interior corners. It's been buffed to give the appearance of age also exposing an incorrect base.

    CA Pochers on single decal M42s must be approached with extreme caution! Especially as good ones have been applied to no decal M42s.

    Thanks Doug,

    I was always under the impression it was a fake but when I first saw it, it was the pick of the pile. In hand it just had a look so I though it would be good to check. At least I know why it's a fake now.

    Thanks for all the help everyone, you learn something new everyday.

    Well that was an interesting turn of events. I was given this helmet for free today. I was quite shocked as even with a fake decal its still a decent lid.

    I wish I had your luck Jase, if I fell into a drum of nipples I'd come up sucking my thumb!
