The decal appears to have a rounded bottom & when the first photo is enlarged there seem to be scratch/scour marks through
the decal which do not appear natural.
Gday Brett, i hadn't really noticed the round bottom, but i had seen the scratch marks but if you look at the air vent area it also looks a bit shiny.. i was thinking someone may have had a go at cleaning it?
....Good old Ebay........!
I bet there are a few of us here who pay too much for these things
because we're out-bidding each other all the time.........!
Yeah! I almost got one similar to this on ebay a few weeks back..it had a partial liner with a name written inside. $270!
Nice Phil. I hope it's all good, bro!
I reckon it's too good to be true
it looks bad to me sorry rgds Dave
Hi, the more I look at it the more I'm convinced all is original and period. Nice one!.
I wouldn't go near this SS helmet. Reich SS do you know that ET SS decals never, ever, ever have a rounded bottom nor break down in this fashion?

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
