    Do I see TWO decals ? It is an M42, and should not have two decals IMO,
    but I wouldn't think the helmet is not worth too much anyway - even
    with battle damage - maybe $50 to $80.

    If this is being passed off as an SS lid I'd forget it, because it will be
    too much $$$, and condition is very poor.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    No worries Jamie, but remember it's your money and if you like the look of something and it doesn't matter about authenticity then go ahead it only should matter to you if you like it or not, but i'm sure no one wants to see you or someone else taken in by something that is not quite what it seems

    All the best Phill

    An SS lid with 2 decals on a M42? Pretty much tells you the guy is handing you a line.... William
