Article about: Looks like a very nice helmet, Adam - even with the partial liner.........!

    I think the decals are 100% correct. The only problem with the helmet is the partial liner, but the exterior is really nice and the helmet displays well.

    I beg to differ, but that's my opinion....they are quite well documented
    I'm with Chris, I've never seen a 'water police' decal that is convincing.

    I agree with Jim. No problem with this party decal, looks like a correct Pocher party decal as found on this style of M34. Remember there are several makers of party decals and they will differ ever so slightly so comparing one to another should only be done by the same maker for comparative purposes.

    As for the water police, they may be documented but this was before further knowledge and magnification shows no layering of gold on the decal, just lacquer toning as seen on many Heer decal examples. I'd like to see your example posted in a separate thread if possible, as I agree I haven't seen one yet that was layered like a KM gold layered decal.

    What documentation are you speaking about and who is the author of this documentation ? Just wondering.

    For me also correct and original decals , originally applied.
    And as an avid helmet collector and observer I haven't seen any Polizei helmet that could be called water police. Haven't seen any supporting evidence either.

    I think we had this discussion before, about the Water Police decals, apparently the info came from another site but again i believe the so called documented examples were proved to be incorrect and that natural toning was the cause for discolouration

    You are correct Dave.
    From what I remenber ,Dealers came out with the story of the water police to increase the price of helmets with the yellow looking decals.
