For starters, I don't like the liner. A liner for a Size 66 helmet should only have 8 fingers.

I love asking kids what they want to be when they grow up because I’m still looking for ideas.
The decal shot is too far away however for sure it is postwar applied as this is a rear stamped Q M40, meaning well past the point of when SS runic decals were applied. This decal - if real - also is not one I would be comfortable with on a Q shell of any kind except a reissue.
If memory serves me correct this was posted on another forum not long ago, perhaps with better photos I cant remember, and I wasn't too fond of the decal then or now or the liner. Strap certainly appears bad.
This is one that should be avoided at all costs.
Hi Samir sorry it's not a Q decal, it looks like a fake NS decal (champagne decal). A Q is a "first pattern" runic style along with Pocher and EF SS decals, while NS/SE and ET are "second pattern" runic style to quote old collector terminology.
