    I guess it depends on whether the decals have been completely scratched off or there are still remnants of them. The one that sold on the WAF was a good one but there was very little left of the decals, you must remember the one I am referring to? It was on estand for a few months

    Sometimes, on rare occasions, yes, you can tell if it had an SS decal.

    Here's an example of my old Q66 SS defaced most likely by the soldier due to the new regulations at the time.

    This is a side stamped Q66. Theres no evidence, not even a hint that there was a decal on the left side. The right sides patina is consistent with the rest of the helmet. Lot number comes back only to SS branch and if I recall there are two other SS helmets out there with the same size and lot number.

    As far as the source, just like a member here stated earlier, anyone can make me mistakes.

    Another thing I wanted to add is regarding value. The value for my helmet for an example is probably worth either the same as an average no decal helmet or just maybe a $100 or $200 more depending on who it matters to and how much they are willing to pay.. The decal on an SS is everything. The decal will make or break the deal.

    yes but the fact that the best of the best wore it makes it a neat deal to own.

    Hi,

    You need to post pics. It doesn't matter how it resemble mine, you need to post clear pics, lot number & size to confirm what you are buying BEFORE you buy, not after, because this can be very tricky! When I bought this helmet I had Kelly Hicks & Doug Buhler look at it carefully.

    I don't recall what I sold it for, its been a while now. The person who bought it wanted for his SS camo cover.

    I don't like discussing prices especially on SS helmets. Its a subject I try to stay away from.

    i understand what you mean, i am merely trying to distinguish worthless no decal versus worthfull decal, there must be a way to distinguish, like someone noted the batch number and maker being all correct for a more valueable no decal than if the batch and maker not being as good, I am tryin to understand the thinking on these things. but i guess if all else fails, no decal worth a reg. helm... so decal does make the helmet period,,, no in between.
