    Hi Nick,
    I've notice now that the seller has owned up as of Today (28 th) and revised the listing to state that's its a repro

    Funny that after you highlighted the fact on here

    This is the problem with Ebay, you sell something in good faith, and then some enterprising so and so decides to sell the item on as genuine although they now full well its a reproduction.

    Hi there, The reason he revised was because I told him lol i posted it up on walhalla.se and they all told me it was fake and then they gave me the link to this thread lol so yeah my email telling him the helmet was faked made him take it down from 150 to 50 and I swooped in for the kill and bought it! Tis a nice looking and helmet
