    Default SS Double Decal - What do you think?

    Here's my SS lid I bought in the summer. I'm pretty sure that the liner is a replacement, and that the chinstrap may be a repro.
    but what do you think of it? I am hoping it's authentic.

    thanks cats

    Mate i can't see anything good about this one

    i don't like the paint , the rusting and the runic decal looks like a round bottom fake i'm afraid,

    regards

    I didn't think it was all quite there, I didn't lose out much on this one.
    thanks for the information.

    It's still a period lid though right? Just faked to be ss?

    The helmet shell itself is original.

    You answered your own question to be honest mate... There arent many people who dont know what an SS helmet could be worth, so if your offered one at a price thats too good to be true.... It is

    Everyone hopes for a deal you know...lol

    I bought it from a coin dealer. Coin dealers always seem to wind up with medals for some reason. I guess becasue they are round
    So he got this from a person with another helmet, an Africa Corps one, and he was really trying to sell that one to me, but it was way to suspect. So I kind of look at it like I didn't get burned for two helmets.

    It's still a period piece, and I don't mind that. I paid what a regular helmet would go for around here from the guy. So I'm not too upset.
    All is well

    but thanks for all your help guys...I'm learning.
