    Decal is all wrong is it not ? Look at the bottom of the rune's and how they line up with the break in the shield ?

    The liner is aged, and rather poorly I think. I'd start the return process. And please post helmet before you buy. Especially SS lids as they are the most commonly faked lids, and for good reason.

    That would be the outer liner band. It wouldn't surprise me if the band is original, but the leather itself looks strange to me. I'm 100% sure the decal is not right though, it does not match any decal from what I can see with the blurred pic. I checked the lot number in the GHW database and it came back as SD Heer. Do you already have the lid?

    One thing I learned here is never buy a SS helmet unless DougB is standing next to you with a magnifying glass! I am somewhat new here and the things I learned in a few shorts months had me raise my eyebrows to this one, the decal being chipped at the bottom to hide a round bottom fake, the painted on name looks too new or purposley age and the ss inscription seems a bit fantasy, and the look of the liner, also knowing how rare and expensive real ones are. always use extra caution with SS stuff, you did the right thing with posting pictures here before purchase.
