    hi kradman ,what stamps are you referring to,i can only see the liner stamping on my computer allthough it seems a little blurred ,the scrim atop of the netting certainly doesn't seem period

    The BMB stamps have been done twice, hard to say from the crappy pics of it if it has been done to hide a post war date, though the rest of the pics are pretty sharp. Not one that I would buy.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Dodgy photos...best way to disguise dodgy merchandise........caveat emptor

    Looks like a later dispatch riders lid done up to resemble a para helmet........Dutch and Belgian forces used such helmets post war I believe and the seller is in the Netherlands......draw your own conclusions but I wouldn't buy it...

    I like the way he has faked the chalk line around the crash pad in the top of the helmet.

    There's a general "Gloss" and cleanliness to the helmet which I'm personally not over keen about ...

    any clues to how it would be restamped ,would the seller have made up a copy stamp press ? or is it easier than it sounds
