Heer Adler Decal Reference Section

Article about: Thank you for your contributions guys, but please give us at least a brief explanation of each variant if you can. It would make it much easier for newer collectors to be able to learn about

    Default Heer Adler Decal Reference Section

    Hi guys,

    Lets keep the ball rolling with Doug's database initiative. Here we will combine our photos into a Heer decal reference. I only have one to contribute.

    Quist "Bigfoot"

    Apart from a few Pochers and other variants that are sometimes found on Quist helmets from 1936, this decal was used by Quist until the end of decal application in 1943. These decals are only found on Quist shells. No other type of Heer decal should be on a Quist shell. These decals were not used for re-issues.

    The details of this decal that set it apart from others include the obviously larger eagle's right talons. The eagle's head is also much flatter and narrower than others. From what I have seen, these are strong decals that tend to hold together. They may exist, but I have never seen a flaking Bigfoot decal.

    I have a nice cross section of Heer, LW and Police decals, but no time right now to photograph the decals and complete a thread as detailed as the SS one. Great idea if members want to add to this one.

    great idea
    Here is my ET decals,one in good condition the other a bit rough.
    It is found on virtually all ET factory helmets from 1936 to 1943. Unlike the Q decal it is found on other factory helmets(SE and EF), as well as a variety of reissues. Info is from Ken N's book...
    For me the easiest way to tell a ET is the dimple on the far right Talon and the shape of the head.......another feature i noticed is the top of the wings,one has a nice curved arc the other curves then straightens off. Im not sure if this is specific to ET

    regards Paul
