    Just curious -- I have read about the NS/SE champagne decals and this does seem to fit the bill...the maker (ckl 64) and lot no. (575) are within the ranges for the m42 NS/SE SS helmets. Could this be legit with this being considered??? Also -- the bottom may be slightly sharper than pictured, is that possible?

    I thought you were trying to buy it.

    The SS decal is not a good one. Don't try making it something it's not or you'll be spending money foolishly.
