    Your confused because in order to get an accurate comparison, you need a close, clear photograph of the decal. I'm not a helmet guy at all, but I can even see the decal is a copy; seems like a lot have been posted lately.
    Liner looks post war as well.

    I can only agree. Better pictures would be all right. But here you can clearly see a copy!

    looks like a sticker but also could be a version of the old round bottom fake .....also possible Norwegian red dyed liner ( look for domed head brass liner rivets to be certain )

    I can see verdigris on the pins holding the leather so they are probably copper based; ie Norwegian.

    The decal is a bad copy, and I do agree with the gents about the liner.

    Hi,thats one poor decal,ET type runes,POCHER type breaks to the shield and as pointed out a very round bottom,all in all as bad as they come! As for the liner,thats no better,a red dye as already stated, sorry, Leon.
