    The only good thing about this one is that its a genuine shell and liner band, the paint and decals are fake/repro as has already been said. Removing the paint and decals would probably be an improvement.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum alberta1,

    Unfortunately this is not a good example. As Paul has just stated above, it is merely a relic helmet that has been repainted. Take some time and search some of the threads here on the forum, and you should be able to find plenty of good, original SS helmets for comparison.

    As others have said, it is merely a relic helmet that has been repainted in the not so distant past. The inside condition should have been a dead giveaway. As Tiger88 said there are plenty of good threads to read up on here on the forum. Another tip when your looking for a truly authentic SS helmet always go with someone you trust, there are far to many people out there that would like nothing better then to sell you an fake helmet. My best wishes in your search.

    How much did you pay for it? Not to rub it in or anything. Just curious.
