    Well, if the seller doesn't want to send pictures, don't bother anymore.
    The guy shall have to wait long time if he doesn't want to send them.

    IMO the helmet has been tempered with (a lot).

    I see a heavily boogered with helmet. Looks like the edges of the decal have been purposefully obscured. If it is a good piece the seller should be happy to provide extra photos. NH

    Good decision to leave it alone.

    So, the seller managed ONE photo in a near reasonable size while the others were thumbnails... of course, the tiny thumbnail sized ones include the conveniently angled decal shots. The decals look almost scorched, kind of like fake paper based ones... impossible to really tell with photos akin to poor satellite imagery, of course --- All I can say is; walk away

    I find this fake WW2 "relics" thing very interesting. It must be based on a huge demand..

    No, it's based on the opportunity to relieve hard working honest people of their money by nefarious and criminal means that are not especially high tech or especially difficult, it's "money for old rope" as we say over here.....
