    Opinion on this one: Luftwaffe Double Decal

    G'day Team,

    Attached are some small images for a helmet that came up in one of the Australian collector groups today. It's a Double Decal Luftwaffe (looks like an M35 - although pics are a bit small to see the vent detail) and the consensus is not good. We've asked for clearer pictures, but any gut feelings on this? I've asked whether the orange/brown dust on top is grime or rust. If rust, it obv doesn't bode well as it looks quite fresh. Are there any glaring issues with the decals? Looks like there's a bit of excess transparent decal edging around the tri-shield and the Swazi on the Adler looks a wee bit crooked. The helmet is named to K. Motter (did a search online and couldn't find a match in closed auctions, sales sites etc). The helmet is stamped with what looks to be D253.

    Any help would be warmly appreciated. We have asked for extra photos, but happy to hear thoughts from the helmet crew. Perhaps this one has passed through one of your hands, or you've seen it at a show?

    Kind regards,
    Jim
