    Hi William, for me that's a fake decal, the feather details are beyond poor, they are not even there.. If you look closely you can see the "shadow" of where the original decal was behind it. Leon.

    Decal is bad. Liner is bad. Judging by the interior rust, I also suspect the exterior paint is bad. Otherwise, it is a really nice helmet.

    It's a winter camo liner Harry!

    Always suspect when the usual 'dot' at the base of the right wing is damaged.

    Thank you very much guys! really apreciate your help

    The inner is too bright but i thought i could be due the flash or camera used for the photo, and a late war liner that if i'm not wrong was made with other kind of leather and are "brighter"

    About the shadow of where the original decal,i saw it, but thought that could be a replacement during war or who knows... when i see a good offer i hope that it's original, but... helmets had their prices and bargains are rare to find... I'll keep on searching.

    Thank again to all!
