    Default SS Camo with wire!

    Here's a thing............................ This is the reason why forums are so important to our community.

    After getting a pasting on another forum because of it's lack of credibility I was offered the very same helmet at a show "up north"

    What a small world we live in.

    Even the strap was SSBW marked

    This is the only photograph I have, but I will post more if they become available

    I have not seen the other thread so here's my 2 pence.

    The paint/lacquer shows no immediate sign of cracks associated with many years of exposure to heat and the drying of the old protective finish. The decal looks ok to me.... maybe an original decal (unapplied dealer purchase) that has been covered by a fresh finish to disguse the fact it is new.

    What did it feel like in hand mate?

    Cheers

    Well there you go, my instinct is getting better. That lacquer/finish looks like it was applied this morning!

    The first thing taht comes to mind is ss helmets mostly had their ss covers and there was no need for this further camo on them.THIS WOULD IMEDIATELY IN MOST COLLCETORS BE VERY ODD AND CAUTION WOULD HAVE TO BE PAID TO A HELMET LIKE THAT.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Hi John, it is truly bad.

    What I don't like is that the seller now knows it is bad, but continues to offer it to other people as original.

    Cheers, Ade.
