    I am sorry to inform you, there are probably only a handful in the world that are as qualified or more than DougB to make a call on this with the photos that are provided.

    Believe what you will Sheri. Sadly these conspiracy theories of saying its fake, buying for a repro price and selling it for real has no place here. That speil belongs in the JFK sequel.

    There is a lot more to SS decals and helmets than simple graphics! Which yours do not match a "second pattern" correctly. Just trying to help, not interested in an argument, cheers

    Hi Sheri,

    Welcome aboard! I'm gonna have to agree with Doug. Like he said, it's more than graphics.

    Studying SS decals is not an overnight thing. It requires some serious dedication, physically handling them and lots of patience. I study these decals for the past couple of months, day n night, and I still have trouble getting it right.

    As far as your example I'm afraid its not a genuine decal, but an attempt of the real thing.

    Wish you lots of luck and thanks for sharing.

    Regards
    Samir

    Doug is being very diplomatic in his post above IMO.
    I will continue in that vein.
    Suffice it to say, that in my opinion Doug has saved a lot of people a lot of money and anguish.
    Those who who were smart enough to heed his advice, that is.
    Again, thats just my opinion.

    When it comes to SS helmets, especially SS decals, Doug's knowledge is second to none! He has gone further than anyone else researching SS decals. For an example, pioneering the use of ADM (advanced digital magnification) which I am also studying. ADM is the last stop on the train for ultra highline SS decal fakes that even fool the best at this game and I thank him for that, because sooner or later these highline fakes would have found a place in everyone's collection, which is a scary thought!

    I appreciate people like Doug B and other experts on this site because they are serious collectors and don't like seeing people getting jacked! It's sad that there are dishonest sellers out there that will fake items. I can only hope that their wives/hubbys/gfs/bfs/bffs, are fake and screw everyone in town behind their backs! Just my humble opinion though...

    Samir, very interesting info about the technology and the use to put at least some stumbling blocks in the way of high-end fakes and fakers.
    Its a nice reminder, that although we sometimes despair when facing a deluge of 'good' fakes ('good' as in closely resembling the real deal) and although fakers unfortunately get better at plying their tawdry trade, we also have advanced technology backing up decades of experience in telling a fake from a genuine item.
