Default SS decals on ckl helmet

Hello everyone,

to my inexperienced eye this looks like a good ET decal on a ckl/ET helmet.
But I don't have a lot of knowledge about SS helmes unfortunately.
What are your opinions ?

Thanks,
Christian

I don't like the Rune level on this... Seems crazy slanted....? Also, not keen on color or symmetry...

I try to get better pictures.

From my “limited” experience it appears that the right hand S is longer and wider than the left hand S

Here’s mine be for comparison and my understanding is that on a CKL they don’t vary much from this:

Looks like a champagne rune so not a good one, check the lot number it will give us a good clue.

Tapping on the posters photo provides a clearer shot.

What I’m keen to understand is the almost parallel change in texture to the paint running along the perfectly below the decal (see absolute bottom of this photo) it’s almost like it had a trace (spray) template over it . . . and the the shadow effect of the decal border on the right side.

Clearly a champagne fake rune, the photo and the lot number confirms it.
