    Looks 100% correct to me. I like the different bolts, not uncommon with these later War FJ helmets. Jim G.

    From what I can see in these photos, all the components look real. What I'm not sure about is if they are all original to this helmet. The liner looks much nicer and much less worn than the outside of the shell. Also, this bolt combination is most often seen on late war no decal helmets but you said this one is marked ET and it looks a little bit like there is a trace of a decal remaining on the left side. It would be helpful to know the lot number and to see close up pictures of the shell stampings, the liner, the straps, the decal area, the nuts.

    Cheers,
    Terry

    I take from this question that the helmet was either sold or priced for what its worth ........ a decent 2nd hand car!!!!
