    Default SS Helmet - Authentic??

    Hi,
    Someone offered me this "SS" helmet.
    Looks like a repro to me but in the abundance of caution I figured I would post it and ask for your expert opinions.
    Thank you in advance.

    Not real. Offered as in free?

    Not even close. There are almost too many problems with this one to list - the decals, the paint, the liner, the chin strap, the absence of chin strap bales, an M40 shell... Thank the seller and part ways.

    I figured as much but the one time I turn something down as fake, it will turn out to be authentic.
    Thanks

    From what I see, the helmet looks like a fake as well. Shell and liner.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    A small investment in Ken N's helmet and Kelly Hicks SS books will go a long way.

    Always! In the meanwhile, this SS helmet would make a fine hanging pot for a small hydrangea plant...

    Perfect reason why I don't collect SS..too much garbage to sift through. Even a Hydrangea deserves better then this!!
