    Red face SS Helmet Q 66, Need Help

    Hello specialists,

    I got offered a SS helmet to buy. The purchase is tempting. Supposedly, the helmet has been lying in a pond and has now been found. What do you think of the M 40 helmet and the SS emblem.
    Is the helmet with the SS Ruhnen original? The stamps are funny, i think.
    I need your opinions.

    Hi, the images are not great but the top of the shield has such a thick ridge running along it that I think it is a fake decal added to a semi-relic shell. The "style" of the decal is similar to a Q but I would definitely want a good clear straight on image to make a proper judgment, but on this evidence I would walk away. Leon.

    As leon said, straight on shots of the decal is a must. Its a rear stamped Q, so we are already off to a bad start. Can you make out the first letter? I cant see squat.

    Yup. Real bad.

    What Samir is referring to is rear stamped Q helmets were typically later than the period when they stopped putting SS decals on helmets. The looks of this decal are not very enticing thus far. Lying in a pond for 75 years, it is not very rusty either.

    No, I can not make out the first letter. The leather should be lower in the water even after 75 years. The Ruhnen not look so good for mich.Der double stamp the back of the helmet's funny enough
