Re: M41 SS DAK

Hi Olivier, this one is pure fantasy. SS had nothing to do with the DAK.
Furthermore the decal has a round bottom and from the very few things i know about SS items, these decals are reproductions.

Re: M41 SS DAK

Hi Don,
Thanks for your opinion, can't be DAK, it's maybe an "Italian campaign" fantasy... Anyway this helmet has a nice pink color and patina...

Re: M41 SS DAK

Could well be that someone has dicked around with a nice original southern front camo helmet and added the fake SS decal

You would need to get a hands on inspection to determine if the paint is wartime applied, does look promising from the photos
