Default SS decal hall of shame

I know other forums have a pinned section on bad decals. It seems like there are two or three questions a day here on SS decal opinions. Almost all seem like bad news. Why not pin a section here for bad SS decals? Seems like this thread would save a lot of "is this ok?" when its obviously a very poor reproduction. Post em if you got em

OK. I'll bite, very sorry to inform you but most of the fake SS helmets circulating the market originate out of Europe, including a couple I have personally seen out of Germany. Your statement that the first and last decal in this thread are original is bordering on sheer insanity. Come to the forum and learn, nothing makes one look more foolish than these sort of statements, all the best , Bill
