    I don't like what the decal looks like.... It could be a fake or restored but I am sure some one else can give you the final answer

    Not a helmet expert at all, but looking at the decal, it's odd how there are scratches on and around the decal but not the rest of the helmet...as if someone was trying to "age" the decal...very suspicious, but someone with more experience can verify....

    I don`t like the eagles head... The head is to big? and someone has tried to age the head part a lot more the rest of the decal.
    Then again I am not an expert...

    And, is it just me or?, I seem to notice that there is more "black" on the right side of the decal then on the left side? (close to the wings)

    And a big area around the decal is sticking out color-wise?

    The decal i think, is good, loss of detail through high usage. coupled with a bad camera angle. I would want to see a straight on photo in daylight to stick my neck out

    Its had a re-paint, but I'm more concerned with the stamp inside the top. Looks too crisp and clean for the condition of the helmet overall. Liners heavily worn, helmet is too?..................put together maybe?

    The red arrows highlight something I believe the fakers cannot replicate..............JMO

    The decal is a very ordinary fake with age scratchs.I don't have to be an expert to say that and what can we say thats good about it?? Its not even a very good job and i would certailny buy a better and more original lid.This one does not show any of the usual character and therefore the warning signs begin
