    I think I have studied original 2nd model luft decals for the past 24 hrs straight so next time If I run into one again I think I will be able to tell... The head and many of the feathers in this decal seem too rounded and the scratch marks around the decals seem to have been done to remove the shinyness of the decal?

    I could Almost have lived with the repro decal, but the Liner is just a mess. It definitely does Not belong with this lid and looks to have been Made to fit into it Anyway. A shame, as the shell is actually quite decent.

    How many helmets were produced with the same lot number on average? If anyone knows? And what are the odds that 2 with the same lot both end up within 40 miles in PA ... lol

    I think I asked that question once, and the answer was 'probably about 100'.
