    Default SS Helmet?

    Hi guys,

    I'm wondering if you could help me ascertain if this helmet is genuine or not. It was bought 15 years ago in Belguim.

    Thanks in advance!

    at a glance, I see improper decal construction. It is like it was printed in one layer as opposed to the original construction of a decal, which was constructed in layers, according to the methods of production at that time.
    I do not see the shine through of the base color on the damaged areas, nor do I see consistent wear overall with the decal itself and the damage to the paint surface .
    However, bear in mind, that I have written no books, and do not declare myself an authority of any kind.
    Usually the details tell a lot of the story.

    I'm no expert, but it looks O.K. But I have seen really good fakes before.

    Im no expert either, but wouldn't the white color in the decal be more yellow after 60 years?

    I don't like the 'saw-tooth' effect down the side of the rune when you zoom in on the decal close up..

    Depends on which type of decal.
