looks ok to me.
Straight on shot please, angled pictures like this one hide a multitude on sins.
Photos of the entire helmet wouldn't hurt either.
This is an ANGLED photo???
Only 1 or 2 degrees going by the ovality of the vent hole .... does it matter THAT much guys?

They look real by the pics but possibly postwar applied, looking at the sloppy placement and damage of the party shield and the folds / cracks on the police decal, and the lack of any matching wear on the decals to the shell, and scratches that disappear underneath the decals.
These decals used to be fairly plentiful loose.
I am not a fan of this helmet. The decals look like real decals, but I don't like the placement, i.e. they aren't centered on the vent holes. In fact, they are way off. This suggests to me that the decals were not factory applied. This is a huge liability in my book. For me it takes a leap of faith to conclude that the decals were War time applied in the field, especially since unapplied Police decals are not that hard to come by. Just my 2 cents, that my wife will confirm aren't worth a penny. Jim G.
The helmet paint looks washed out compared to the decals, which looks fresh. This one just doesn't sit well with me.
