German Helmet SS Runes Second Pattern Decals - post 1940 ET & EF manufacturers #10
Used on ET (Eisenhuttenwerke Thale) and EF (Emaillierwerke A. G. Fulda) helmets after 1940. Models M40 and M42 and re-issued M35's.
Notice the curved outer black outline without a sharp join and the bottom of the runes end below the join of the curve. The border is also thinner than the Pre-1940 decal version.
The colour variations show the decal in different light conditions - just as the originals had different colour variations due to age, wear, application, varnish, storage etc.
