    Looks a good one to me. I can see the gold flakes you would expect to see, be interested to see what others think

    Parade helmet i would think. and I maybe sticking my neck out, but it looks like a private purchase decal?
    Just try to remember that it is the lacquer that turns most decals a golden colour, and a lot of people get confused between a toned Heer,and a true KM.

    The decal appears to be a toned Heer decal.

    Here for comparison is a known good KM decal off a recent pick-up of mine, a DD M35 KM helmet. I am not on my home computer so I went to GHW forum and took these pics off so if anyone wants to see the entire thread it is located here;

    Kriegsmarine Double Decal M35 ET62 - German Helmet Walhalla

    I would expect a deeper gold and seeing a definite border to the gold overlay as seen in the picture with the flash glare to better expose the gold overlay border.

    The gold should also be quite a bit deeper in tone.

    That all being said, I am a tad rushed as I am doing this on the fly from work, and pics taken under a loupe may be quite a bit washed out in color and contrast.

    (The Deaths Head is my watermark, that is not part of the real decal).
    I will pop in to this thread later and have a closer look

    Cheers

    I tried to neutralize the colour balance. Not sure if I've succeeded

    Boys, if the man says Heer. Then a Heer it is!
