    Hmmmmm very well could be but the decal is a good one, or a good repro. Lets see what other says.

    IMO its a good EF, with an ET pattern decal. Decal appears to have been cleaned at some point in its life, maybe period or post war. Doug will give you a better idea on the decals condition. lets wait for him to chime in. thanks for sharing.

    I agree with Samir, an ET decal that's been scrubbed on an EF shell. For whatever reason ET decals can be found on EF M42's with no rhyme or reason to pattern. For this reason you must proceed with extreme caution on these as I have found a super fake ET on an EF shell only ascertained by ADM examination and it fooled me at first, but I did not have the helmet in hand, was only sent a few ADM pics. Because this decals been scrubbed, and I see no other scrubbing on the shell anywhere in the pics provided, I would pass on this one unless you have an USB scope and even then I am not a huge fan of ET decals on EF M42's just from an aesthetic standpoint. It's like mixing black and navy blue together, you just don't do that fashion faux-pas!

    Ed, just out of curiosity, who is selling these lids? They appear to be from the same source or is it my 86 year old eyes.

    Doug, I always thought that the infamous highend fake ET decal was only found on M40 shells, had no idea they were found on EF M42's, thats very interesting (and scary). Would you recommend ADM? If it fooled you, then no one's safe!

    Samir,

    Your eyes are very good as both the M42 and M40 are being sold from the same source. Whether or not he got them from the same source I do not know but can ask him. The gentleman offering these for sale is Robert Iqbal in Syracuse, NY. He has a website called "Collector to Collector Militaria". I attached the link below.
    The helmets are not listed on the site but are coming out of his personal collection.

    I have the chance to buy one of these but I want to make sure that they are authentic.
