    Default SS Relic, or only a relic with fake SS decal?

    Hi all!! i'm thinking of buy this relic SS helmet, but i'm not sure about if it's a real SS relic, or only a relic with a decal add on later, (fake), as allways, i hope that the knowledge of the forum people could help me!

    Another question is: how would be a good price for this helmet in this conditions? (nowadays a SS helmet in perfect conditions cost too much money for me, and i think buy this would be an interesting chance for have a SS helmet)

    Thank you very much to all!!

    From what I have seen presentable SD SS relics usually go for $700-800 and up, depending on condition -- probably somewhat lower if they're really rough. Not going to comment on that decal as I wouldn't really know either way... looks kind of scrubbed though.

    How do you expect us to give an opinion without a close-up of the decal ....

    Thanks guys for your answers!!
    i have ask to the seller for a better photo of the decal (this is what i have for now)

    Waiting for a better photo, if we confirm that it's a genuine decal, any opinion about the price? (more or less, in order to have an idea of what would be spend too much, or a good deal! ^^ )

    I think that these relics are such a subjective matter that you'd be better off seeing what he's looking to get, then post it here and take it from there. All this depending on whether or not it's a genuine SS relic, that is...

    Without clear closeups I am afraid nobody can say. I enlarged the photo and I am not sure that given the condition of the decal it will be possible to do so either without an in hand. I would strongly consider the source, if not a bulletproof purchase with an unconditional lifetime guarantee of authenticity I would not consider it (or any SS helmet for that matter).

    The source was eBay, but the seller removed the item, price 200. i think i'm gonna let it go...

    Probably for the best, you'll find better ones! Might be as as easy as looking in the classified ads on here... there's at least a couple of SS relics there from a trusted digger --- those would probably come with the actual find location as well... a big +++
