M40 splotch camo

Hi gent's,
hope everyone is healthy!
Saw this on Weitze.
I really like these splotch camo´s.
What do you think of the Heer decal ? 
I´m interested because it seems somehow "different" to me.
Weitze writes:
"Look at: the Helmet Decals of the Third Reich, 
by Ken Niewiarowicz page 67" Unfortunately I do not own this book. 
Is this helmet shown there or is the sort of decal shown? 
Would be very happy if someone help me and of course a few opinions about this lid from you all.

Regards,

Not a one looker for me , someone touched up the decal so could have been what I call a post war project helmet.

Not impressed with this one.

As far as the decal...I don't know what it is. Never saw a decal so "distressed". Such a variety of patina & coloring to me looks artificially aged. The decals on page 67 are two varieties of HJK...neither are similar to this decal.

I would pass...but just my opinion

Thanks, D

I agree with the aforementioned friend's comments.

Hi Felix, I would be cautious buying from Weitze without really vetting his items. He is known to have quite a few stinkers over the years whether on purpose or not (the guy is kind of a fossil) but he has a good return policy. Just be vigilant!

Yep , a lot of stinkers. 3 bahnschutz helmets at this moment , all bad.

I want to thank everyone for your opinions.
Luckily I didn't buy the helmet. Better to post first and then strike ... 
I am very grateful that we can all sort out such rotten things here together.
