Looks like someone upgraded a ND Q to an ugly fake SS , would like to see the liner as well. Cannot understand why in the age of digital photography people withhold photos , you don't have to pay to get them developed anymore ;-)
I'm a newbie too, but I don't like the look of it. I have been wrong before, and I hope that it is real.
As I thought your decal is a fake Q decal that is a hybrid between a Q and Pocher. Not a bad fake either, will fool a lot of unsuspecting collectors.
In fact Frank doesnt this look like the one on the DDR Fiber helmet, the "private purchase" decal?
what is a q decal and a hybrid between a q and a pocher?
THey are decal types. Yours is a fake that encompasses print qualities of both in the runes and actually has an ET pattern (another decal maker) shield to be honest, so its a real hybrid.
Yes decal is a fake alright.
The parade SS has a much thicker border Doug.
The parade decal runes are very very close to this one as well.
