    Morning, it is hard for me to tell from this decal image, but I suspect that this is a fake ET style decal that has been aged. The helmet itself is good, but I am not liking the way the decal shows up against the steel, just looks a touch contrived and I think the helmet may be a hkp made example and not a ckl (ET ), but better pictures of the decal and makers mark are really needed to be sure. If the seller refuses to provide them, walk away, he will be hiding something. Leon.

    I would rather buy a helmet with crystal clear decals. WSS is so rediculus high priced nowadays, i would have to be 101% certain it is a genuine example before paying 5 Reals for it.

    Hi, the shell needs to be a CKL or EF to really stand a chance, however as Leon has said the decal does not sit well against the shell. Do not pull the trigger on this if the seller gives no more info.

    Thanks Leon. Agree. Decal appears heavily scrubbed compared to the rest of the helmet. That is a big warning sign.
