    I'm not convinced by it at all.

    I thought the largest shell size was 71?

    I've never seen a size 73 shell, mind you... I've led a sheltered life! The number stamps look crude, and I can't see a slight 'dip' to the rim in the front profile of the helmet. I'm no expert on these helmets, but for myself I would not be comfortable with this helmet.

    The largest standard M38 shell is size 71. But I have seen pictures of a size 73 and Ken N says he has seen it and it is real. It is in eastern Europe somewhere I believe. However, I do not believe the one shown here is real in any way. I do not like the shape of the shell, the rolled rim, the size and lot number stamps. Nicely aged but not real in my opinion.

    Cheers,
    Terry
