    According to my reference book, the eagle decal looks like "First pattern, straight leg". What do you think?

    I think the bird is a repro, the majority of the feathers on the wings should like arrow heads. On many of the repro first pattern decals those feathers are a continuous crooked line, as the feathers on this example appear to be from the poor photos. The tri color looks bad as well, and I don't like the paint or the liner either for that matter. I would avoid this one. Keep searching for a one look original, this one has too many red flags.

    I agree with Frank on this one, in fact id say that the helmet itself could be a repro judging by the very rough edges to the rim, bad fake all round

    Thanks. I think I'll let this one go.

    The only thing that looks original about it is the M35 shell.

    So it is an M35? I thought the vent holes above the decal closeup look like an M40. Still learnin'.
