    Default SS Decal quiz

    I have been asked to make a decal quiz on SS decals so here goes, with 1 twist. Pick the 1 real decal. 3 are fake. All are a CA Pocher style. All I have had in hand and examined in detail.
    I will reveal the answers to the quiz tomorrow night MST. Have fun! And remember, CA Pocher decals were the decal used on a wide variety of shells civic and combat alike particularly prewar to 39 and reissues. 3 of the decals have nice age and toning. 1 decal is near mint. Have fun!

    I voted for no.3. The slight misalignament of the top horizontal black line and left vertical one leaving a hint of the white field is something I've seen on other originals. But hey, I ain't no helmet guy!!

    I looked long and hard at these and decided that I have no idea and voted as such. I thought 3 was the original, except the crazing runs all the way to the edge of the rune and it should not from what I have previously read. I almost went for 4 just to because it looked OK, but went with the no idea, or certainly not enough to be certain. Luckily the one I used to own came from a good source and now resides in Dave SScrooge's collection.

    Whatever its just an opinion.
