    Thanks guys, hopefully collectors can use this simple section to better identify their SS helmets and if they possess the core graphic and application qualities I have posted. Note, it does not address the further identification challenges of print quality, pulver construction and minor print variations but should be a good basic first step guide for collectors to compare with.

    Supremely informative and succinct thread Doug, personally very useful too as I'm trying to crack this very subject at the moment.

    I applaud you for the initiative, Doug.

    Now let's create Heer, KM, and LW databases, shall we?

    Thanks Doug.
    That would be extremely helpful if someone can do the same by Heeres decals. As I've seen in the past very good decals, but with deep bad feeling

    Unfortunately my German helmet collection isn't big enough to make a database by myself, but I have a crisp Quist 'Bigfoot' that I can share. I will start a database today with a good shot of it and I'm sure others will be able to add.

    Some clarification to the term "break". I refer in this SS decals reference thread to "hard" and "soft" breaks. A decal like a Pocher has a "hard break" where the vertical borders end abruptly and then turns inward to the bottom point. A decal like an ET has a "soft break" where the vertical borders do not end but rather curve gently inwards towards the bottom point.

    Further to this the runes for each decal manufacturer are in a consistent position from the break and are a critical and key visual reference point on every SS decal. Key is always the left hand break/runic position from it. Many fakers damage or paint over or cover with wire the left hand break as it is often a dead giveaway as a fake. Often the decal has suffered the most (fake) damage or covering in this 1 spot. Fakers often know this reference point and try to hide it on purpose. If the left hand break is damaged or covered in any way and you are new with SS decals then automatically your spider senses should start tingling that there is something not right. Note, many real decals and helmets have suffered decal damage in this area as well so its not a hard and fast rule, just one of the many things to note when evaluating an SS helmet.

    I hope this makes the term "break" and what to look for a part of your decal knowledge skills!
    Cheers
    Doug
