    Default SS helmet, bought by a friend's wife, real or fake?

    Hello,
    Once again, my friend has something he doesn't know enough about.... so i am calling on your greater knowledge and expertise, please:

    Bought for him by his wife at a 'real' price, history and provenence unknown,.... is it real or yet another fake?

    (Sometimes I wonder if this bloke collects fakes, rather than real )

    Thanks, jim.

    I'm gonna say a pre-aged Pocher style decal added to a bog standard M42 repaint ( check the chipping around the vent holes )
    Also, the wire clips on the rim are EXACTLY the same as the ones on our kitchen curtains - no wonder the wife liked it!!

    Am I learning Doug?
    Cheers, Dan

    She really needs to stick to the ironing only........

    She really paid the price of a small car for this helmet ? I find that hard to believe anyone is that stupid. With all due respect of course...

    What a chauvinistic reply Ned, I had no idea you were like that !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Thanks guys, just as i suspected

    This bloke does baffle me, I've been pointing out his fakes for a few years now, but he still buys more - very occasionally he does get something nice and genuine, but even that is usually by mistake.
    Doesn't help that his eysight has almost gone, but he's a good bloke with a heart of 9ct gold. His missus has a 21ct heart, hence she paid 1500 for it in the hope of making him happy (she's usually the sensible one!!)

    Thanks again

    A real wired SS would cost 4 times that much.
