Fake German Steel helmets

Article about: I'm seeing crappy decals and incorrect liners, but no fake shells...other than the whacky Jugo "SS"....

    Default M35 with DD SS decals

    This one was on Facebook with the poster claiming it was his 'hobby' to make up helmets like this.
    He got taken down a peg or two in the comments as everyone suspected this was for financial gain.

    Notice the sharp points on the runes, the very recent scratch marks on the decals and strategically placed damage on the breaks.

    Zoom in on the swastika for a good laugh.

    Yes Nick but this would still pass muster with the majority of "non collectors"..... and when we are all dead and gone, creations such as these will be held up as original. I have seen worse in museums - and that's the scary aspect!

    Dan - it is a concern. Fake decals are getting better and it is an insidious part of collecting. It makes it very hard for the new collector. I think with a USB microscope you should be able to detect a fake decal, but this is not an option when purchasing online.
    Let's hope we can stay one step ahead of them...
