Can I have your opinion an this helmet?

Article about: Does it look original to you? The paint look very new to me, but I am not an expert at all. PS: I think that there are some pictures not allowed by imageshack, probably due to the svastica.

    repainted,re-lined,fake decal(s),,,shell may be original,,maybe original civic/police style liner with cork spacers but ink stamping is spurious,,so you have a "put-together" helmet

    Judging by the internal rim of the helmet i would say its possible thats fake as well, are there any markings on the inside of the helmet just below the right chin strap post, ?

    What do you mean with "re-lined"?

    There is a mark on the left side. Looks like "LT6". I am attaching some more pictures.

    shell markings look questionable from what is presented,,,i may now think shell is a replica too,,

    Hi, and welcome to the Forum, Setis !

    This is a total replica/repro/fake, top to bottom !
    Nothing real about this piece. It is of recent Chinese manufacture.
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Yes, agree witrh all the comments made, unfortunately its a bad fake, i hope you can get your money back if you have bought this. Relined basically means that a liner has been added, whether its a period one or replica

    Thank you for the comments, guys...

    It´s not a lot of money that I paid for it, but still... I hope that I can sell it again as a replica.

    It's definitely a repro, and a very poor quality one at that! Glad it didn't set you back too much money , but I'm not sure you will have much luck selling it on.
