    Hi , i'm afraid ET64 2620 is listed as single decal Luftwaffe in the lot numbers book.I think I can just make out the tip of the adlers wing to the right of the decal remains. It is possible that it was re-issued but I doubt it. It looks as though there may have been two decals(one on top of the other) as it appears to show signs of two "black borders". I think when the runes are on this side of the helmet they were usually for foreign volunteer units. Once again there is no way of telling if the runic decal was original from these pictures. Leon.

    Thank you for the info,I paid $50 for this in 75,I can't help but think the way it is faded into the finish it is period,but I am probably wrong.

    I have to agree with Leon I got one like that orig paint liner chinstrap a couple of years after you bought that for Seventy Five dollars back in them days. Some one had put Fake SS decals on right side and removed them it looked similar to yours. timothy
