    Chris,
    That's strange, I can't even find the crest decals anywhere, that even come close to the one on helmet.
    I have found the police decal and it's spot-on!! please show me the fake (CREST) ones if you can, Thanks..
    As for the camo. I say it's good. imho..

    I have brought from this collector/dealer for some time now and have brought many helmets from him in the past and everything was as stated. I can't believe he would do this.

    I did email the seller (dealer/collector) that was selling the helmet and asked him ,
    Question, Who guarantees this to be 100% original?
    He responded back,
    I do,, I have had it looked at by several very experienced dealers and collectors, you have a return privilege as long as you like, thanks..

    Thanks, Bill

    Can anyone gather info on the one decal showing 2 griffins and a swastika?

    This military group comes to mind... " Finnish Utti Jaeger Regiment " https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utti_Jaeger_Regiment

    I could be pissing in the wind too ..but have to start somewhere with the use of a Swastika and a Lion.

    Regards Larry

    The decal is for Danzig. I refer to one here in this old thread:

    Dutch helmet with swastika and lion's decal

    I don't believe them to be original.

    Cheers, Ade.

    CRICKETCHRIS1944, in your opinion, why is helmet and the decals fake?
    Points of interest to me. The original lugs were removed and replaced with air vent grommets - never seen that before. NEVER seen the Heimwehr Danzig police decal before - ever, in any way, shape, form, or fashion - that is astonishing. The outer shell still wears the original Austrian brown with the original decals and the strangely applied camo?! The exterior looks pretty darn real to me, certainly wouldn't rule it out. - outstanding whatever it is...
    ,
    You can't say they are Original decals , therefore you need someone with experience look at them with a USB microscope.
    Many fakes look pretty darn real to a lot of people , that's why ever so often people are left with a hangover and an empty wallet.
    That's why we collectors should discuss such one off pieces and be realistic.
    Have it checked out in hand by a host of helmet collectors and you'll quickly know what it is.

    And you should post the other helmets you bought from the dealer that said this helmet is good.
    If they are like this one, you are in trouble....
