Hello Guys...I am interested in this helmet...but not really sure the decal is correct.I have researched this, but can not find a photo of one being worn during that time,or one from WW2 Period.I have seen several Factory Police helmets,but not one from BMW.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-GERMAN-WW2-F...=item3f48cb5df5

I did find these reproduction decals...here is the site:

http://www.fallschirmjager.biz/store_repro_german_decals.htm

Really not much information on them,however not sure if this is correct...I read these decals were worn on each side of the helmet.

Anyone have a period photo of one in use?? Whats your take please...it has zero bids starting @ 199.00

Thanks Sepp

Sage words Rob, indeed. Sepp things have changed enormously since the Lowell shows back in the day. Overpriced authentic and ginned up fakes prevail, as well as the (expert) carnies that now sell them.. Almost not worth getting back into this hobby. GDC Gold badge 157. Even though I was under 100 members when I supported this forum. I remember when e-bay was the place to go. In a way the internet has put an end to straight dealing. Some of the best collections where herded by nefarious collectors ,post E- ban creating such an environment.
