    One look original. In my experience, single decal Lufts in this condition go for between $500 and $650. It is a nice representative piece. Jim G.

    The Nazi sign on the decal concerned me as it has sort of a 3-d look (white around it) instead of just a black outline.

    To me it looks as if there were 2 decals applied to this piece, and the one on top looks right to me. Just my opinion. I guess a close up shot of the decal would help. Jim G.

    This helmet is a nice original Luftwaffe M40.

    The "3D" effect you are seeing is the result of the application of two LW decals. Sometimes decals had to be applied a second time because the first decal was applied incorrectly. This was especially more common with LW decals because of their shape.

    Would it be worth $500 in this condition (no chinstrap and decal partially damaged)?
