    Hi, better close up images of the decal would be good but I think this one is ok, I cannot see a "halo" around the decal area that would indicate a later applied decal on a relic and the general pitting and wear looks good to the decal also. What maker is the helmet? I think the decal may be a POCHER?? Leon.

    Looking at purchasing from a private collector who I have dealt with before and am very satisfied with.

    I have pictures of the inside but cant see any markings that I can read. I have sent my contact a message to check and will let you know when I find out.

    Thanks

    All those bubbles will eventually "pop" & look like the craters. That includes the decal ones.
    Just bear that in mind with the purchase.

    Please post decal closeups, maker and lot number. The helmet is an M35, would expect there to be green paint not grey unless reissued, but see no sign of a party decal. Large globs of grey paint on the front of the dome are strange as well. Single decal Pocher, grey paint, no party decal, instant red flags but way better photos of paint and decal are required with other requested information. If this is all you get walk away.

    Looks like the lighting is pretty awkward on this one. Depending on how the light hits it it looks both grey and green... and I don't think those are globs of paint --- looks more like larger areas of raised paint due to rust bubbling, as is visible all over the rest of the shell. Overall I can only say that I like the cohesive relic look -- no expert on decals (besides general look) or the very specific SS configurations though so... I can only say that as a relic it looks OK. My 2 cents are officially thrown in.

    Cue better photos/decal close ups, I guess.

    After a close re-look over I'm going to call it as a repainted, redecaled and reburied relic.

    The reason is that the clean painted areas around the cracks and damage is just not believable to me.
    There should be bare metal there in places but there is none!

    And thats a red card from me.... in my opinion.

    Here are 2 more photos I have. I will post maker and lot number when I get that info. The guy is like a turtle when responding so nobody hold their breath.
