    Looks like a decal or something under the SS decal. Evident along the right edge.

    Hi, looks like there is a small "fleck" of red where the runic shield is damaged at the bottom left to me. I would say that this is an ex double decal HEER helmet that has had some post war decals added along with a dome stamp. Leon.

    You always spot the tiny details Leon. Interestingly Frank has exactly the same lot number (21057) as a DD Heer.
    Lot number 21059 has DD SS with Pocher decal. Looking at the SS helmets in his database, quite a few have Pocher decals.
    There are of course multiple differences within each batch, but I just though i'd chuck this out there.

    The runes are fake, too sharp and the dimensions are incorrect IMO. Also, same like artificial tool marking on the decal.
    May I ask, this and the other SS lid you posted have issues, did you buy both from the same source, as they could both quite easily catch out a novice collecter.

    Agree
    The main reason I dislike this helmet IMO, it was "built to deceive". Many "restored" or re-decaled helmets to me appear "innocent". Hard to describe what I am trying to say. This one just has a look that the intent was to rip somebody off "big time". It screams fraud, money being the #1 motive for the "restoration"

    A shame that someone would choose to deliberately ruin a perfectly good DD Heer helmet to try and make a buck. Those are hardly cheap themselves. Not as expensive as an SS helmet, but still a pretty penny.

    Only before I start on the beer Nick, afterwards I often back a bright pink SS helmet as being a good one! Leon.

    Yeah, of course, if you strip off the nasty post war decals carefully you have a decent "decal removed" M35 HEER which is probably what it was before being tampered with. Try and get rid of the dome stamp as well while you are at it. Leon.
