    I can confirm the decal is fake.
    Are there any markings on the liner? I don't have enough knowledge to judge the liner, but I'm sure someone will comment.

    thank you guys,
    how can you tell the decal and the liner are fake? What are you looking for? I'm trying to learn as soon as possible...

    If you don't have original example, try to buy a good collector's guide about the helmets. Personally, I will tell you. Typical fake type of decal, not proper color, artificial age traces, feeling ( is the first and most important goal)

    Dear Drago,

    I agree with the fellows on liner and decal, but I haven't seen a faked size 60 helmet before. So the helmet shell seems to be an original.

    Whatever this may imply.

    My goodness. Are there any orginals out there?

    Yes, George,

    plenty of them. But a lot of restored ones too, and even comletely new productions. The latter, fortunately, are easy to spot, though.

    Yours,

    Olaf
