I would expect an ET decal on a 'ckl' marked helmet.
This is a EF decal which is uncommon to see on a helmet that was produced by ET.
Although I think there might be some exceptions.
This decal does not look fake to me.
Wait for other opinions though.

Hi,

the EF pattern decal was exclusive or so to EF M42 helmets.
The decal is shiny as hell... Not good.

You can also get some reviews on the helmet subforum.

See You

Vince

1) CKL = ET Decal 2) This "EF' decal is fake, one big flaw is present 3) Lot number is past SD status IE - 1943

Sadly, what looks to be an Ok helmet has once again been fooked with a crappy fake SS decal... Hell, it my be even repainted and I cant see the liner, so - it's a big dud... Sorry...

In addition, just noticed you live in France. Your country has some really good fake decals coming from a company there. Could be one of theirs?
