    SS helmets have a very steep learning curve. Because of their value, some fakes are quite good, but new technology has given the collector the upper hand, for now. I agree with Doug's advice. Buy the mandatory SS books and study hard. Nothing beats having a stable of originals to pull off the shelf and run a loupe over but Kelly Hicks' books are like money in the bank.

    A few years ago, I went to the SOS with a pocket full of cash to hopefully purchase a Q decaled m40 helm. I was also armed with a ton of fotos and lot number lists. I ended coming home with all the money I left with. The study material bailed me out big time!!

    Telling the difference between fake and original SS decals is difficult especially with all the different types. For me, one day it just "clicked" and I saw it. I still break out the reference material for the difficult ones!
