    Default M35 SS DD real or fake?

    Hello!

    This is my first post here. Dimas has given me his opinion on a helmet that I have bought. And he suggested that I post some pictures of the helmet on this forum to get a second opinion.

    I bought it from a dealer in the UK, who of course insists that it is genuine. However, the more I have looked at it, the more I have started to wonder. That is why I asked Dimas to have a look at it, as I have bought lots of items from him in the past, and went out to estonia to meet him and Aleks.



    I know that the liner has been replaced!

    The makers stamp and size is ET66. And the rear skirt is stamped 4292.

    Please let me know what you guys think of it.

    Thanks for having a look.

    Dimas has given you the correct information. The paint finish is horrible and is not even close to an origianl example. The fakers have never been able to master matching the color and texture of period paint. As Colt 45 mentioned, the decals are also fake and poorly aged. Study original paint and you will immediately notice the striking difference. I would suggest buying " SS Steel," by Kelly Hicks if you wish to collect the most faked helmet, that of the S S. I am sure you would have saved yourself a pile of money if you had first invested in a good reference library. This one is easy to judge as a stinker.

    Also the bad signal is the price ( of cause if you buy from a dealer, but not from a vet family or so) as I know the price was also cheaper than 1000 USD?

    All opinions are correct... the price is not always the truth but should make careful - original complete pieces DD are 3000 - 5000 USD maybe - with replaced liner less of course - but still minimum the double price than you paid.

    Hope you can send it back...?

    Regards, Daniel
