    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Hi,
    as paul says fake decals, scratch them with your finger nail it will come off. Helmet looks ok.

    Shell is fine, The interior paint is as well. The remains of the liner are also original, but I suspect that the exterior paint is post war. Unless it is really cheap and you want to take a chance to see if there is anything under the exterior paint, I would suggest that you save your money. Jim G.

    Whatever you do never scratch decals with your fingernails as originals can be damaged this way as well.
    The fingernail thing is a fairytale.

    The decals of the subject helmet are fakes.

    As an original shell it may be worth $200-$300 tops. Selling it as an original SS SD for that price is wrong. Perhaps the seller should be contacted to advise him/her that it isn't correct, and hopefully that information will be passed on to potential bidders, if, of course, the seller believes the info and is reputable. I have occasionally advised a seller on ebay that a piece wasn't correct, and on one or 2 occasions, the seller posted the information. Sadly, on several other occasions the seller ignored the information and the pieces sold for big bucks to unsuspecting bidders. Two of the fake pieces were the subject of a thread a while ago, the RZM and the Ear Cut Out listed by the same seller from Belgium. Jim G.
