    Complete fantasy, never existed as a decal and almost never seen as a hand painted application. I have never seen a period picture showing either type.

    At that size, I believe it was most likely made as a helmet decal.
    Interesting though, even if it is not original.............

    These are sold through various sites providing fake decals, had one myself that a friend gave me to put on his repro helmet, didnt bother, i believe there may be something similar that was put on some vehicles via a stencil, but i dont see one going on a helmet.

    Fantasy item. Loupe it to 20x and you probably see stitching effect of print.

    These have been around since the 1970's.
