Walk on and keep looking...
Points to note: shape of the shell, liner stitching, chin straps, press sdtuds etc, paint....

The price and the amount of fakes will keep me from ever owning one of these........sigh.
Yes certainly a bad one. Good luck on your search, a couple nice ones for sale on Shirlins site.
Hey Doug, not to hijack this thread but since I'm new here.........have you posted that helmet I see in your avatar somewhere?
I agree, the one posted here is all bad.
Hi Terry, nice to see you here. I am afraid I've not posted it but I am sure Eric Queen has posted it on GHW, it used to be his and I bought it from him last year. I'm in Belgium now visiting my son, and were off to the military museum today if he can drag his arse out if bed lol.
thses fj helmets must be the most faked helmet. ive even came across alot down this end of the world. but i know of one real one here. it was brought back by a vet that served in italy. his son got his hands on it in the 70s and cromed it. to wear on his motor bike.
Aaaarghhh! I think bird brain bikers must be responsible for more wrecked helmets than the ROYAL ARTILLARY!
she said she will dig it out when she goes to the farm for me but next time. but that was months ago. but you just dont no it may find it self being posted here in the near distant future. but im not hopeful.
ive heard the chinstraps for these fakes are from west german m1a1 LL helmets if thats true im not sure but they look very similar
