    Default 'SS' Helmet - Real or Not?

    Hey guys,
    I've been offered this supposed SS Helmet, the seller wants $800 for it. I bought a few things from him awhile ago, but don't know him enough to really trust him. Besides if whether I trust him or not doesn't mean he knows what he's talking about. So, do you guys think its real and if so what would it be worth without the Liner and Chinstrap? Any information is greatly appreciated. This is only my second post but so far you guys have been very helpful.

    Thank You,
    Cpl Mark Fidler, (USMC)

    I say no way Mark.
    Fake round bottom decals and looks like the paint has been hit by a blowtorch to age it.
    Nothing to see here soldier!

    I agree with Dan on this and just a note to Dan. We refer to our selves as Marine's not Soldier's!. (A soldier is army) It's a Marine thing.

    Hello Mark, welcome to the forum. I am afraid the guys are spot on. This is an original M40 shell that has been aged(badly) with fake decals. The runic decal is trying to look like an ET manufactured piece but it is nowhere close to what an original would look like. Leon.

    The price alone should be a red flag. There are no bargains in collecting anymore. If it is too good to be true, it likely is not.
