    Hi chaps and thanks for your replies!! I bought this helmet a long time ago from a recognized dealer. At that point I hadn't studied these decals and just assumed it was original! I stuck it in a box and stored it away. I have since read books and studied decals and just last night, I had a quick look at this helmet. I was a bit concerned that this particular decal was missing a "well known dot" on one of the wings. Although the absence of this dot concerned me, I know that a small number of ET decals were produced without this dot. So, just thought I would run it past you guys. (it's a single decal by the way)

    Cheers guys

    How can you tell?
    The photo is far from being clear, i'd be interested in learning how to spot a fake from such a bad photo.

    I have to agree with Francis. Missing a key reference point.

    Agreed, and scrubbed to mask this deficiency. Jim G.

    the decal looks like an original but like said as above has been defaced to hide some features, almost like it has been smugded to hide the faults
