    No because:

    Decal looks to be the round bottom fake type
    Forced wear to the decal
    Maybe forced wear to paint but needs better pics to confirm
    Liner looks to be new, again forced wear, stained brown and wrong colour
    Again hard to see but I would hesitate to say chinstrap is new and aged.

    These are just what I see from the pics but more info would help to. Lot number? (if available) , where its for sale?, price all would help. More info makes for a better response.

    Cheers

    Hi,from these pictures(which are not great!)I would give a BIG thumbs down.It always amazes me that every fake SS decal that you see has "damage" to the point of the shield,i wonder why!!!!!!It still doesn't cover up the fact that the decal looks to have been put on the helmet yesterday and the trusty screw driver put to good/bad use in very similar,even, fashion all around the helmet and on the decal.

    This thread is useless without a close up shot of the decal.

    Kevin, if the seller can't provide you with a close up of the decal, it's because he's hiding something.
