    Default Fantasy MKII on ebay?

    Hello, I would really like to know your opinion on something I have never come across before, it seems this seller is the repository of the most unusual MKII helmets on the market today.
    Having seen the artifacts previously on sale, some so obviously misleading, I doubt this one to be anywhere close to reality.
    Could it be that amongst so many dubious items, previously offered, this one could be a real period job?

    Please let me know what you think.

    Thanks
    Paolo

    Thought there might have been a bit more wear around the lining securing nut and bolt, but who knows with this seller.

    Isn't one of the purposes of camouflage to change the shape or silhouette? Gluing cloth to the outline only gets rid of any reflections.

    I imagine it's being sold by someone who often uses the word 'sleeper' in his descriptions, he/she is someone I wouldn't want to buy from even if the item is obviously 110% genuine.

    MKII dome pad in MKI liner. If it looks too good to be true etc.....

    On principal I would pass as I will never give this seller any of my money. As I have posted before, he does have good unmessed with items, but the pimping of some is crooked and he should not be allowed to trade IMO.

    I have bought at least one nice helmet from this seller, but others ( most ?) have not been so lucky !

    Not a helmet I would want to own

    Hi, not a helmet I would be happy to trust being an un-messed with example, bearing in mind the seller. Leon.

    I've always been of the belief that a true Helmet will always sell itself,that fact this item has a stupid starting price suggests otherwise.
