    Both decals are repro's. In addition, the shell is an M42. With very few exceptions, double decal M42 SS helmets are reverse decaled. Those were originally double decal Police, with Pocher runic decals placed over the Police decals. The decals on this one are early repros - the disc on the party shield is way too close to the top of the decal, and the graphics of the runic shield are bad.

    At any rate, it was still a pretty exciting archeological dig through the paint!
