    hell yeah its a good deal! I could remove these decals and sell it off ebay for 300 + dollars. I just had to get it, I don't think anyone here would pass it up if you had the little extra cash...why not?. Steaming which way?

    Maybe it is an old "2nd gen fake" then, who knows... the paint itself overall, barring the oddly bulging "decals" looks kinda good looking at the photos provided (granted, they are poor)... to me at least. The most peculiar part, to me (again), is the left hand side --- almost looks like a poorly post-war painted Heer decal has been neatly painted over, only to have another shitty piece of Luftwaffe ish artwork added partly on top of it. Maybe it's just the photos and the paintwork is really all wrong, all bad... it's just such a strange combination.

    At the very least it looks like an original setup, barring the obvious AND the possible post-war paint.

    Yeah, don't go messing about too much with the paint
    or you will destroy any potential value. The problem
    using thinners or acetone is that you might remove
    the top coat and end up with smudges on both
    sides, so steaming the visible fake decals off
    might be the best option.........

    Yes how would I go steaming, I think this helmet needs to get this shit off!. I knew of course the decals were fake but its a good deal over all for a nice complete helmet

    Just a wild and crazy thought...Maybe just a long week and I'm tired and not thinking right. Dismissing the placement of the decal under the it possible it is a KM 2 layer thus why it is raised?

    On second thought, ignore this...even two lays KM's are not this pronounced.
    Definitely not a KM Adler.

    Before you do anything, search to find the absolute best way to fix it. Dont do anything in a hurry.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    Well I got the decals off. It's the best anyone could do, trust me, I spent hours. Specially that damn heer decal was a mother #&*#&*#. Lost some paint but its expected for these babies were on for a very long time. I think it came out good. Its better looking at it now then with those decals. Screw it, for 150 bucks, oh well!.
