SS M35 Helmet Shell

Article about: Hello all, I got this M35 SS Helmet from a friend of mine today. We are both not 100% sure of it being a legit SS helmet, but it does appear to be very convincing. The decal appears correct

    This is probably best answered by Frank (Schwerpunkt) - he has used USB microscopes a lot.
    One thing i noticed though was there doesn't seem to be any metallic pulver evident.

    What USB microscope did you get BTW?

    Got a Juilion digital microscope, I’m sure there’s better out there but it was cheap so figured I’d start with that one

    Yeah, mine is a bit like one of these. All the cheapish ones seem to be similar.
    There is a thread on it here:

    Not seeing what I expect to see of the pulver so far but the quality is not super.
    Try to set it to a higher setting.
    The photo should be at least twice the size and show more color depth.


    Here are 2 close-ups of an ET SS decal.

    One at 25x and one at 200x

    Still trying to figure this thing out haha, not seeing a way to enhance the quality any further besides zooming in and out. Here are a few more, will upload better ones if I can change the quality.

    Really seems like the best I can get so far is this quality, the decal being so worn of course doesn't help either but wish I could get better pictures

    I've been trying to mess with the lighting and distance with my microscope but it seems like I can't get any better quality pictures than the ones above. I haven't studied SS decals much, but could mine stand a chance of being original from the pictures provided? I've tried to do some research into the decals lately but guess I should've invested in a higher quality microscope

    As Frank said as well, I'm not seeing any pulver.

    I don't think it is the microscope. These cheap versions are all pretty generic and would not be surprised if they are all made by the same company in China. They all look exactly the same. I haven't used mine in a long time as the software that came with it flaky.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    I connect mine to my Android smartphone with a USB OTG cable and use CameraFi as the app - I can get closer pictures than yours (see the linke above to my EF SS M42 helmet). I agree with Michael that the software is fiddly though (Either on a PC or a phone).
    I also agree in the lack of pulver in the decal - all other decals, this seems to be evident in the close-ups..
