    Any ideas or thoughts even from bad pictures? Are there examples like these that are real?

    I like the decal (close up) and all three helmets. The colors, liners and chin straps looks good.
    But it was only one detail photo of 4 decals. You need from every single decal detail photos.

    Helmets with two Wehrmacht eagles exist.

    Hi Marty, the only examples I know of showing double decal HEER helmets were from the Reich's movie propaganda section. They had dd's to ensure that the decal would be seen from either side during all scenes from all angles. Effectively they were just movie props for film, but an interesting piece of Reich history all the same. Leon.

    Hi Basti,
    I cannot remember seeing the film around, but there are "stills" from it showing the helmets. I have seen them in the past but did not save any images. They have been on this forum in the past though so a search will find them (eventually). Leon.
