    Default SS Helmet. Is this genuine?

    Good evening gents,

    I have been offered this helmet, no talk of price as of yet but, I would like your opinions on the lid anyway.

    Only info I can give at this stage is...

    1. Helmet was in a shed corner under a leaking roof for many years.
    2. It is an ET64

    Regards

    Carl

    Looks like a round bottom fake to me but wait for other opinions.

    Hi Carl,

    Looks like a round bottom fake decal to me too. There appears to be pitting under the decal as well, especially under the right hand rune.

    Got to agree with them both, fake decal in all probability, strange amount of damage as well, i would say this was a semi relic lid before it was messed about with and the story added

    It's not the classic "round bottom fake", that's patterned after an ET pattern. This one, it's just a bad old fake, with a round bottom.

    Can't say for sure Paul, I sometimes receive emails from contacts and advertisements in a few different countries in Europe.
