    I would like to hear your reasoning for this statement.

    Well, i might be wrong; but it looks to new on some spots. I see some traces of wire on the shell, but not on the most obvious places?
    Could be cleaned though,but i "just dont see it".

    At first I thought the wire was bad but at a second glance you can see the age of the wire were it is attached there is some rust good helmet in my opinion

    It looks very interesting. A good find, i hope you leave the wire just as it is.
