    Hi Robbie,
    I think it is a nice genuine relic helmet. From what I can see of the transfer runes they look convincing enough but I'm no transfer expert.
    If it was cheap enough I'd stick it in my office on display.

    Cheers

    Sorry but I am less convinced than the others are.
    I think the decal has been added - it doesn't sit well with the diagonal scratches in the helmet.

    I agree with Danmark, the decal looks, off, how it just fades away and all the corrosion being around but not touching the decal, I think fake, real relic, but fake decal.

    I agree that the decal is bad. I would stay away from this one. Jim G.

    Looks likethe decal has been scrubbed on the right hand side to cause it to fade away after it has been laid on top of the rust !!
