Hi Dave, I have no real knowledge of these particular helmets, is this a documented fliers helmet? What purpose does the two studs have on the front of the helmet? Are you sure this is not a old motorcycle helmet and these were there for a peak?
But I am certain the paint was applied after the helmet was used and cracked.
I have highlighted just a few areas of concern: paint filling old deep scratches and also going into the cracks. Make sure you double click on the pic.
Hi Dan, sometimes reputations are very well deserved...
