    You're right. Zoom in on the areas highlighted on the runic decal alone and it appears to have received the attentions of a black indelible marker or paint pen in several places. Plus the white field looks to have been touched up possibly where indicated?

    Thoughts?

    The crazing on the white field does not look like decal crazing either, much more like paint. The area around your question mark shows that nicely.

    DD SS M35 are priced high usually. I see Shea just sold one of my old DD for $30,000. It was named, researched, photo of the man, and extensively published. It was not even in top condition, I've better named and researched ones.
    Are you referring to the one with the NS pattern decals? That sh*t sold overnight.

    That's what I mean Doug, 2.5k euro is cheap as chips for such a nice condition shell, even with no leather and the damage. It made me think it's priced cheap for a reason, perhaps regarding the potential decal issues as you say.
    Ok sorry I misunderstood.

    Yes, I know the buyer too. It was a pricey one apparently.

    Default Not so nice anymore.....

    Thanks for your opinions! Now I believe that this helmet is not so nice anymore.

    Once again, if something is too good to be true - its not true.
