SA Helmet Decals Real or Fake?

Post by Shackles101 » 04 Jun 2019 10:50

Hi, I'm after some advice on the authenticity of the two decals shown that are present on the same 'SA' M35 helmet by Quist. I have no knowledge on SA helmets and I cannot find much information of use online. I would greatly appreciate any comments on whether they are real or fake and any info on what to look out for to distinguish a real decal.

I'm seem to vaguely remember that the three points should not touch the outer ring of red? If this is the case then I presume it is a definite fake...

Thanks for confirming! I appreciate the link, interesting to see how easy it is to get hold of the fake decals.
