    I agree Steve this guy needs the truth , i
    I agree Paul.

    Gary I see you checked the SS decal reference thread.

    SS Runic Decal Reference Section

    I hope you can see the clear differences between your reproduction ET decal and a real one. The ET are not rounded bottoms but have a soft break and all of these SS decals are pointed bottoms not rounded although some purveyors of fakes would like to have collectors believe in the late war variant theory they extoll. Note the high standing of your runes within the shield and the white border on your decal. The construction of the decal also looks wrong.
    Free does not mean real.
    Cheers
    Doug

    after some research and new pics also found believe this or not skin and a clump of black downey feathers attached to the skin at first i though it to be a piece of the wearers scalp as he got his top pierced by a 2 " piece of shrapnel anyway i posted this all wrong da the helmet is a sd m1940 et 66 production # 716 and looks to be a 0. the ss decal in question is slightly rounded as is all the scond pattern ss decals the runes is wider and different when you put the 1st issue runes along side it just the wqay they are supposed to be if you could look at the ss decal in the pic im displaying alongside you can note the simular ior exact design even the boprder has turned some vistages of white trace just l;ike some other m40 ss sd ive seen here the pitts are a real story teller and are completly absorbed in the decal all same weathering as whiole surface of helmet and should be inside back rear rim ss and owners name traditional with most ss combat units. decal has some tracews of silver amongst the body the boarder edge faded with a fake decal thats the first to chip away this on never chipped away it faded into the medal as the weather conditions took their toll found in a defunct chicken coop detmote germany 1975 i did a trade with a person for my jump boots field jacket and 100 in casdh i was a corpral in the 101st airborne division for bde 76 at the time. i cant get a pic up here ive tried till im blue in the face
    this helm was ne4ver really intended for sale i posted it to show it figuring i would take it off i put a price way over the actual value of a battlefield relic liner is still there and chin straps although brittle with some ears cracked off buckle fell away the helmet pins still there sound never tampered with all sound to me when i first oposted it i didnt know hopw to manuver around the site i also posted it as a m35 which made the decal really bogus lol but it is exact demensions and style with the second issue i stand firm until proven wrong im not that proud thanks
    I mean no disrepect but please use punctuation. I can't read all of this, it's too tiring.

    Decal is bad as stated.

    '1st and 2nd pattern' terminology for SS decals is a bit out of date, and used mostly by the websites selling the fake decals I have found.
