    Austrian Luftschutz Helmet Help Please

    Hello
    A little help please, this Austrian Luftschutz helmet is currently on estand. Ok the Austrian version is not as common as the standard versions which is good, at least I don't see them, is this one OK and is the decal on this one real??? it does not look like any of the ones I recognise, a little harsh and no dots at the tops of the wings??

    Any help appreciated

            great marco shots of the decal Edwin...

            So is there an Austrian Variant of the LS decal like Police ?

            Just curious myself...

                  besides the worn off dots at the top, what would make this a fake decal ?

                    Sorry guys but I have to disagree, IMHO decal is an original variant applied over a real rare shell. No reason to put a bogus decal on a shell that it is quite rare itself. According to new pics posted by Edwin I don't see any red flag, probably the only neo could be the poor quality of it respect to other LS decal applied on standard lids.

                      I have to disagree too...
                      Must say after looking at the close up photos I do like what I see, some kind of Austrian variant? Way to detailed for a fake decal in my opinion.
                      We have seen variant decals on both police decals and party decals so why not a Luftschutz.....

                      If this was a modern fake we would see pixels or saw tooth edges on the close up photos....

                        I would like to see the pulver at 200x.
                        This pulver looks flat to me.

                          While the quality of the decal is good the lack of dots on the top seem to be a problem as they certainly are not worn off. Some of the modern copies are done silk screen, like originals so lack of pixels and saw tooth edges can be avoided.

                          Read this link and we get an idea of how reproduction decals are being made much better. Kind of pisses me off.

                            I must agree a Very Rare Shell with an Austrian twist on a LS decal.
