    As you said, the liner screams artificially aged to me. Looks like the decal was attacked with steel wool to add some wear and tear.

    I'd say the steel shell is real, but not much else.

    I believe the paint and decal are fake. The paint has been sand papered to appear as worn. I certainly am no expert on decals but a gut feeling just doesn't give me a warm fuzzy feeling about it.
    If you are thinking about buying this helmet I would look for another. If you own it friend it is my personal opinion that you have been skinned.

    I agree with the guys, not a genuine one I'm afraid, everything except the shell is post war.

    Fake as a $3 bill. Value for salvage of shell only, minimal value.

    The faker should have applied the camo of the decal, because its terrible!
