    This is a beautiful re-issue SS in the harder to find milky grey colour. I know of a small handful of others in this colour and this follows exactly how most SS were reissued, that is repainted, this one done with an internal template to cover the liner without the liner removal, and new Pocher party and runic decals applied over top the existing decals. Typically what happens over time is age causes the crazing you see below the party decal, and some of the chipping you see in the runic decal. Also the decals appear to have "shrunk" somewhat also common to see with period applied Pocher decals, probably application or ambient temperature causing this.

    This is a first class reissue SS, my compliments on the pickup. The helmet was also posted by another member in another forum. Is the helmet being sold?

    Doug,

    Thank you very much for sharing your detailed knowledge concerning this type of helmet.

    Yes, this helmet is currently for sale. I took a chance and recently listed it on Ebay ----it had a couple hours of good exposure before Ebay delisted it.

    Thanks again for your time.

    Kind Regards,
