    Looks like a great example of artificial ageing!...

    Doesn't look good I agree. You should always ask for maker, size and lotnr when buying any helmet but always for SS.

    Artificially aged with fresh dirt applied by the looks of it.

    Hi, I do not like the look of this one either, looks to have false ageing and the decal seems to be quite pale, no sign of a metallic element for an ET type, but then again the pictures are poor. Leon.

    Notice the 'cleaned' area around the decal where, I suspect the wire brush was used to age the decal.
