    Default SS double decal Stahlhelm! I know

    Got this one from a guy I know in Bastogne. Im new to Forums and this is the only one I belong to so Im going to be posting alot of my stuff here for more oppinions. I have had other collectors around me bless my stuff off but the more the marrier. I want to know what others have to say. It has metalic like decals, stemple and so on. The liners are not the origionals from the helmets. They dont allow him to sell the origionals from his store for sanitary reasons so he bought a bunch that were left over from the war to use. Where are my experts?

    Artificially aged repro IMO. A couple of fake decals, a quick rub with sandpaper and there you go. The only trouble is someone forgot to age the inside of the dome. Look how new that is compared to the skirt.

    Compared to genuine examples of the decals I have seen, in my opionion the bottom is far too round to be even close to the originals as already mentioned by Paul.

    Thanks

    Is that for real? What kind of shop does he work in?

    I was about to say the same thing, I reckon its the kind of shop where they havent figured out how to age liners.....hence the stupid story to try and sell the helmets

    Thanks

    If that's the case, in theory they shouldn't be selling any second hand item of clothing or headwear for 'sanitary reasons'!
