Kriegsmarine decals

There are only 2 accepted Kriegsmarine decal designs. Due to the ridge the ET style KM decals are a little bit easier to classify. The other design by Huber Jordan features on EF helmets which have a reputation for very toned decals. This makes it hard to discern a real KM from a toned Heer.

ET decal

  • Always on ET , SE and Quist. Seen one once on an EF M42 but EF mostly uses the Huber Jordan & Koerner (Thin wing) decal posted below.
  • A typical feature that makes it easier to separate a KM ET decal from a Heer ET decal is what collectors call the ridge. The ridge is a raised black line that goes around the entire decal including the swastika. This photo taken at an angle shows the ridge.
