    What do you think? ......what distinguishes a KM from a Heer?....there are many threads on the forum to learn from.
    If we just say Yes or No about a decal, how does one learn?

    Hi, it's a HEER decal, no similarities to a Kriegsmarine. Leon.

    Brannik you will find that most of the gents here are more than happy to help but you should at the least look at some of the many examples posted here on the forum and come with a preformed opinion as to the authenticity based on your own observations.. ie...why do you feel it is or is not a good a helmet and decal and from there help will be forth coming please have a look at the link below...

    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    I think the point Dan was making was, that a 5 second Google search would tell you the difference between Marine and Heer Decals, thus anyone serious about a hobby like this would have checked that..anyway the authenticating always takes help from guys here, better clear pics would help a lot with this Brannik

    Default answer your question...this looks like an authentic Heer decal....definitely not KM, as it would be noticeably gold in color (the eagle) whereas this is white, but slightly toned.

    Again, good one IMO.
