    Hi Visor ,this is a fine example of a double decal HEER m35. A good complete piece. As for the "crazing" to the decals ,that is a common trait that is seen on decals that were period "lacquered". Over time the lacquer causes these small cracks to the decals surface, a completely different look to the "splits" you see from post war applied original decals. Again ,this helmet is a great example. Here are my "cracked/crazed" lacquered ET decals for comparison. Leon.Name:  51906d.jpg

    Hey guys - not sure if I confused everyone? However, I know all about the crazing aspect. My question was why there was "black" in the cracks of white... That was it.... So, intern why I asked the question - as I thought this decal was printed on a "white base." Therefore - seeing the black in the cracks of the white part of the National Shield made me ask the question.... Nothing more than that...

    Thanks - Duff

    Duff,

    You can see the white under the black and red print, and the white is crazed and crackled, probably stored in a very hot attic or something for decades. This causes the base to shrink exposing the painted surface of the metal helm underneath. Under a loupe, or high magnification the milky white cellulose base should be seen and no sharp print lines, which cannot be seen without magnification.

    Cheers
    Doug
