    I've got my doubts about this one, the damage to the decals looks pretty recent and a poor attempt to make them appear aged. The bottom of the swastika decal doesnt look right, theres actaully what appears to be some dark mark underneath it, possibly the remains of a failed attempt at adding a repro decal? The swastika also doesnt look like its in the centre of the white circle.
    As with the SS decal, the left rune looks larger than the other one.
    I'm not an expert, these are just my opinions, lets see if I'm getting good at this

    Thanks

    The helmet is showing an ET runic shield, this would be correct for an EF lid. Pictures without flash would give a better overall impression, however I like what I see so far

    No Danny what you said is not necessarily rubbish, but the "scratches" that you see are not trying to hide anything,IMO The party shield is a tough one to decide on, and before passing any judgement i think photos without flash would improve any decision, but the general appearance is consistent, and it does look like an ET shield with the slightly rounded bottom. I am hoping that it is a good one, because real ones are really thin on the ground

    Hi David, Sorry I should have explained better, and not assumed.

    ET was a manufacturer of SS decals, as well as the helmet shells, ET= Eisenhuttenwerk, Thale,
    EF manufactured Helmets, but not decals.
    EF = Emaillier-Werke AG. It is quite a common occurrence to see an EF shell, with an ET pattern runic shield.

    I've posted a couple of pictures, some of the "better" fakes, it's a cross between a Pocher, and ET. They are getting harder to spot, and that's why it is imperative to do your homework

    Of course this is just my opinion, and I could be wrong

    I would leave an opinion to the ss decal exsperts ,but its clean condition could be down to it having the ss cover on it most of its life!
