Hi, i'm not keen on this one myself.The decal looks poor quality,and it seems to have been artifically aged.If the decal had been "scraped" for post war reasons surely the swastika would be the first to go,not the border.There also seems to be pitting under the black shield part of the eagle decal which suggests a decal thats been applied after the helmet was in use.I personnally think someone has tried and failed to upgrade a decal removed helmet.
thanks, I must say that I got this helmet for free, from the landfill
In that case it's a no lose winner!!
Of course I have nothing to lose)
But still I would like to identify a fake or not..
I don't like the poor quality lines in the eagle and the dot pattern behind the swastika. I believe the dot pattern is a fake decal.
This is a nightmarish fake decal, I don't blame anybody for wanting to remove it.
Fake decal .
