How much $$$ is it.........?
I think the decal is bad. It looks applied over a badly pitted area, after the shell was cleaned of rust.
its bad, looks like a repro early ss decal on a M42 helmet.
A reproduction decal.
I to also doubted the decal.
The rounded bottom fake.
Not the "classic" mass produced round bottom fake, that's in an ET pattern - this however is a fake Pocher, Pochers are rarely seen on M42s in a SD configuration.
Thanks Doug, and everyone. I was waiting/hoping for the original poster
to comment - one way or the other - with his own ideas about the lid,
instead of another 'real or fake' barrage.........
I sent Kyle a PM regarding the Barrage of real or fake 2 weeks ago when he first appeared,, but it seems he has not changed his position, in giving any details at all of how any of it was acquired. The boy who cried wolf comes to mind and after awhile his postings and integrity will not carry any weight. Throwing stones at cars comes to mind also just to get a reaction. These threads are becoming dull. Regards Larry
