    I'm not keen on the SS lid but the Luftwaffe one looks ok to me, unless it's a really good fake decal.

    The luftwaffe helmet is ok, i am not quite sure about the SS decal, but it looks "OK" to me.

    Thanks guys for your opinions, was told that M42 NS SS lids have a different type of 2nd pattern runes, is that correct? thanks Clay

    The SS M42 is a fake I am afraid to say. M42NS or hkp would typically be found with "champagne" runes on them.

    CLAY, why do the first pic's of the SS lid have a rivet, but the other pic's , below the luft lid are missing the rivet & strap, also it looks more of a cammo paint job. plus the decal looks different, just asking thats all. no offense meant.
