    Hi Mark, the helmet itself may be a genuine M42 but the decals are very poor fakes. To be honest they are not even close to any known originals. Have a look at Dougs "pinned" thread on SS helmet decals and you will see what I mean. Leon.

    Thanks guys I thought the same thing. I just wanted to make sure they weren't some rare early type that you don't see often. Another thing that I thought was funny was the spacing between the rivets and the decals. Anyway thanks again for reassuring me, take care.
