    Your helmet with decal looks a bit odd to me. I cannot vouch for the decal. It differs from the decals I have seen so far. But there are always exceptions to the rule.

    I'll put it to some contacts and get back.

    I uploaded two pics. One original and one fake.

    Thanks for showing this!

    Cheers,
    Emile

    UPDATE--
    I was going through some old posts and found this one,which is one of my favourite lids.
    I was informed a while back,that this is indeed an original Princess Irene Brigade helmet and quite rare too.To say im over the moon is an understatement
    I know its a bit of a taboo subject,but what would this helmet be worth ?
    Im not really interested in selling at the moment,im just curious thats all.
    Cheers Mick

    I guess three to four hundred euro's. Might be more. In the case the decal is original. The Dutch lion is orange. Yours seems te be yellow!?
