    Today the seller sent me some pictures of the helmet... unfortunately they were the same size as the ones in the ad.

    What a shame, I hope no one gets scammed.
    I wonder what was done to it, almost looks like it was buried for a couple of years

    I told him the decal is fake at least, he wants to know how to tell it is a fake.
    I'm curious as well, but I'm not sure I should tell a possible scammer what's wrong about it?

    I wouldn't bother telling people their fakes are fakes, you just get pushback and like you said why educate him.

    There is a lot to know to tell if the decals are bad from this far away and I am afraid I cant compress the knowledge into one or two sentences.
