    I think the misapplication adds some character to the piece! It is a great example. Congrat's,Jim G.

    Hi Dean
    That is some lid you have! Can't even think of what might have happened to that poor bastard! That pic of the eagle is nicely detailed and that's what I'm working on.

    Hi H,
    Thanks, that's the way I feel about it. Yesterday I added a KM with a decal that looked like the swastika may have been scraped off. To me , that helmet has character too!

    Max et al, I would respectfully ask that when posting closeups of decals a large image size and focused photos are a must in order to judge originality especially in this day and age of graphically accurate fakes - and good inexpensive digital cameras its very easy to do. Max, If you would be so kind as to repost a larger clear image of the decal?
    Cheers gents

    Attachment 332076This helmet is all original, has not been enhanced or modified in any way. It retains about 98% of the original dark blue-gray rough texture factory paint. Correct zinc galvanized steel banded m1931 liner is a size 59. The liner leather is in nice condition with virtually no wear. The original chinstrap is present and is in very good condition. The long end of the strap has been shortened a bit, which was a fairly common practice among the German soldiers. The Quist type 2nd pattern Luft eagle rates at about 95%, with a slight application errori n the swastika, with application errors being quite common in the Luft decal. This Luftwaffe helmet is a very desirable Q66, indicating manufacture by the firm of F.W. Quist in Esslingen, Germany. The lot number is T1483.
    This is really a great helmet in a larger size too!

    Fin hjelm du har der Max. En "mindre" aplikationsfejl må man sige,men bestemt ikke usædvanligt.

    Regards, Lars
