    Thanks Leon, I have done some reading of the Brian Ice book on HKP lot numbers this particular lot number is not listed which would have been after the decal drop anyway but there are field applied SD's both Luft and SS both before and after the lot number on this so i have learnt something anyway. Ha ha just got to get my head around decals/chinstraps/colours both real and fake !!

    Regards Bob. (the student)

    The lot number book makes no difference and again it is also a lot of presumption without absolutes which collectors crave.

    The bottom line is this, its a fake decal regardless. Along with a suspect strap and liner.

    Doug,

    Where can one purchase this book, do you know? I looked on amazon and couldn't find one in stock.

    I don't have Brian's book but have seen several discussions on it. I'm not sure it's really worth the money, but it's up to you. If you want to read just to read it than that's fine. But if you're reason it to help nail down specific branches to lot numbers than you're probably throwing away the money. You're call!

    thank you both! After Ade's reply I searched and found a pdf of it on eBay and threw 10 bucks at it. Interesting to have as a reference.

    I dont own it and dont plan to. There is a perfectly good free lot number reference on GHW2 which was copied without permission and put into this book or so I was told.
