No. It’s a real NOS vintage decal I applied.

Gentlemen, I'm curious, what is the difference between an ELC decal, and a NOS orginal decal and the best repro decal, which for some reason I have lodged in my brain is the MASH decal? Sorry for the off topic question, but I'm interested :oops:

getting a NOS decal (waterslide) is expensive and not always one that may actually still be usable. fortunately for me mine was and slid off without tearing. I had to let it soak for twice as long as recommended but I also used the MASH decal prep and protector coating they offer to make sure it adhered to the jacket. I would say just buy the MASH decal as they are made on the same type equipment and are highly accurate and I dare say probably exact. I wouldn't bother with the heat transfer ones although some have used them and had no issue. I personally don't want to put a hot iron on my leather so get their waterslide version. I have no experience with the ELC decals but I don't think they sell them individually. I believe you have to request them to place them on at order. I wouldn't' doubt if they are just buying MASH in bulk and using those.

here is my little collection of NOS original waterslide decals. I have a bulk set of the ones used on leather helmets each separated with wax paper sheet.
one of the full color for shoulder sleeves (they come in a set of two and I used one on my ELC) two silver ones and a set of tiny blue ones. not sure where the blue ones would have been used except perhaps the white arctic gear perhaps.
