    I was thinking about the lots of tiny scratches in the yellow paint. Also the Heer decals had the whole base in metallic silver colour, so that means that under the black paint there would be silver if the decal is worn off. Well i hope im wrong

    If you enlarge the decal picture on the right hand side around and in between the wing you can see the silver showing under the black, and I would expect scratches on a combat helmet, but certainly taking on board what you say, many thanks again for the input.

    I have seen decals wear like this - I have no problems with it.

    I don't see a problem with it at all. If I collected such TR things - then I wouldn't have hesitated to buy it.

    I have had decals wear the same on other helmets I have had, I knew being a camo I would go through the mill with this , but compared to other helmet I have had the wear all looks right and natural, I Put it on here a few days ago before I did my trade on it and and went with it and glad I did as all looks good in hand. Again many thanks for the opinions I have had for both sides of the coin. It is going in the collection.

    In my opinion it's been repainted.....The cast iron patio table has been repainted.
