    Buying one fake should be max a one off, after that use warrelics and you will have good sleep at night

    The decal seems to be a round bottom fake with the tip
    purposely scratched to hide the obvious.

    Shame. Hope he can return it for a refund.........

    I noticed that too,Steve...apparently, the round bottom is one thing that the fakers have clued themselves in on. So now you see So many decals with "just a bit of a chip".....On the Bottom.....(Just a coincidence, of course...)

    So by your thinking, people are "dumb" because they didn't know about the fake round bottom SS decal? Good grief are you a teenager?

    Who cares?? He's on a fast track to getting binned, and that's down to being REALLY dumb.

    An easy statement to make after Doug B, the resident expert on these things, gives a negative opinion. I have seen a lot of SS helmets over the years and must say, this is a pretty good fake for the inexperienced eye.
