    the helmet it self looks good
    but the decals are placed in the wrong place and the ss is in mirror print

    i`m not an helmet collector but i would say that the decals are added later and reproduction

    I have never seen repro Mirror Runes. Only a few originals are known to exist. Check out pictures in the Hicks Beaver book, I think there is a picture of an original owned by Bill Shea. If it is right, and I hope it is, it is almost a "one of a kind". It is most certainly worth it to have it looked at by more than one expert who you know and trust to see if it is real. Good luck!

    I'll be honest, and I'll stick my neck out and say I like it. Apple Green for early SS-VT which fits, and I know they existed, but never seen one. I'd like to hear from Schwerpunkt . He is more informed than most
