    Frank lot numbers and ET decaled EF helmets have no pattern at all. Unless the lot number is a strange one I dont believe a lot number says anything with respect to ET decaled EF helmets. Caveat is still any scrubbed decal is an in hand item to confirm 100% of the time.

    Hello. I thought that I'd chime in here with a little extra info. I am the other party in this trade (The one trading away the ss helmet)
    Anyway, if it helps or is of interest, I bought this helmet late autumn 2007 or early spring 2008 from Rich B., best known as 55rab over at Wehrmach awards (estand) forum. He also have a website dedicated to german helmets:
    German Helmet Depot
    I don't know wether or not this information is of any interest, but perhaps someone here knows the fellow that I originally bought the helmet from.
    Other than that I will let the members and wievers here discuss and judge the helmet and decal in detail.
    As for myself, I am quite confident that the helmet with decal is original. Althou it has been cleaned, and the liner has been replaced.. The helmet was like this when I first bought it.
    If for any reason, RenŔ should not be happy with the helmet (s) he may just send the package in return, and all is ok.

    Cheers
    Bj÷rn

    Decal looks OK so far, but as Doug stated it looks like it has been scrubbed.

    Rich is a good guy and knows his helmets. I've bought a couple from him in the past. As said it looks good, ET SS decals on EF shells is an anamoly.

    Scrubbed is a term I use for a worn decal that has a consistent overall chafing tpe wear to it, something not detrimental as a helmet cover could have done this or the soldiers removal of winter whitewash, chaffing around in a duffle bag, any number of period uses could have scrubbed the decal wear, congrats nice helmet!
