Original KM Decal??

Article about: by Schwerpunkt That's a trick you best pretend you never heard. Fake decals spotting just requires a good set of eyes and the memorisation of all original decal graphics. It takes commitment

    Thanks Paul, im glad that what that 'expert' was saying had been noticed, apart from him I've found this quite a useful thread and to be honest before reading the posts made by the true experts I would have said that this decal was genuine.

    Thanks to John for showing it and the true experts for explaining

    Wow... That's seriously a repro I would fall for.
    Helmet collectors are definitely walking into a minefield these coming years...

    Maybe I should stop collecting helmets. Whats fun about having an expensive "original" helmet if you don't know if it's repro decals or real ones? You'll just never find peace about it.

    Thats what this and other forums are for mate. You can always check originality... I would never pay before checking first. We are lucky, imagine all the collectors in the 80's buying up 70's fakes.... they had hardly anyway of checking!

    The fun is learning about them , being able to confidently buy a helmet without having to ask anyone. I have been there as a novice collector , asking forum opinions for every new purchase but in the meantime you try to educate yourself.
    I can walk around a fair today and buy the helmets others would not pick up because they don't feel secure enough to buy them.

    There's a bunch of information here and out there just waiting for you to absorb it.

    Yeah, i bet you are right. In some way helmet collecting has gone a lot more exciting than before. Now its some of a puzzle, and I actually think thats good

    However, I just wanted to point out that it could be a nightmare IF the fakes got so good that not even an expert could tell the difference.
