    A single decal camo would be worth more.

    But some collectors just want eagles swastikas runes etc. No thought to history or how it looked in combat in WW2. They just want the pretty badges.....

    Cheers, Ade.
    Very true Ade why people want to mess with the originality of an item is beyond me

    Being honest if i seen a helmet with say winter camo all over it and it was wearing away to show a little bit off decal,i wouldnt hesitate to try, and reveal the rest of the decal,and in my opinion reveal the most important part of the entire helmet,lv

    simple , if the decal is bad , the camo can't be original because it's over the decal in some places BTW even without the decal , the camo shows some problems !
    The decal is a known fake , you can find them on Ebay for few $

    Thank you for yet another vague response. You are aware of course you can't show a swastika on e-bay which makes selling a eagle fake or otherwise a waste of time. In fact IMPOSSIBLE on e-bay.

    Sorry StG45 but if you are still waiting for me to do all your homework , i think you misunderstood me .
    I'm willing to help when someone kindly asks but never say openly all the details , I already explained why on this forum and won't tell it again and again . I must say some other collector friends now don't even post on these forum because of reactions like this
    Also sorry but as English isn't my mother tongue ,sometimes I can make mistakes . I sure would say : you COULD find them ....but still a lot of site sell these fakes .
    For info , this pic was taken on old Ebay , one of these eagles is the father of the decal posted . Sadly they made some improvements since
    And as I'm realy a good guy , I'll tell you find the typical feather in the body and you'll avoid a lot of problems

    Thanks for confirming Francis , I was also sure the helmet is a piece of crap but one has to be careful not to tread on someone's toes.
