    Shiny fresh steel around the front rim mixed with new looking rust is not a good sign

    I found another stamp beneath the liner.

    I have compared this helmet with so many other helmets and still can't find arguments against it. What exactly do you not like in detail ?

    Agree with David, bad liner. Can't tell from these pics if the chinstraps are real or not - they seem a little too wide but need better pictures of buckle, grommets, snap, stitching, etc. The shell is okay from what I see in these photos.

    It will look okay sitting on a shelf but should be priced accordingly as a shell only, altho the jury is still out on the straps - better pictures needed.

    Cheers,
    Terry
    I agree with this 100%.

    The last full pic of the liner...one can observe what appears to be a staining agent on the right hand side of the metal band about the 4:00 position. Looks like they did not complete the antiquing process. The center stitching is too tight, rubber pads are questionable. I still must opine the liner is fake IMO...straps I cannot tell, As Terry said...the shell appears okay, but I think the paint has been compromised some how.

    Shiny ring around the chinstrap metal insert on this bottom pic...think the straps are bad too

    Also..if one observes the upper rim of the liner...there is no wear to the leather. It's just stained. That's were one should see some scuffing or abrasion to the leather. That's where contact is made with the head, around the upper rim of the leather. This shows none of that
