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

It is really difficult for me to discern what makes these decals fakes. Is there a definitive guide to identifying a real SS decal? Are there ways to tell by color? Is there a way to measure runes or distance of runes from border of decal? Thickness of border? I am completely lost here. I have seen lots of SS helmets and always passed them up since I am very afraid of getting burned with a fake. I would like to learn how to tell the fakes from the real as it is impossible to carry this forum and all its seasoned experts in my pocket when I run across something that may not be available for too long. Please help us SS newbies out, guys. Any suggestions to teach us are greatly appreciated. I have only owned one "SS" helmet which I bought as a fake. It was a nice refurbished M35 with Norwegian liner and I paid 80 dollars for it in 1986. I since sold it as a repro for 120 dollars a few years ago. That is the extent of experience I have with SS helmets.

Thanks in advance for any help,

George
