    It looks like a good Quist sd M40 shell with the expected "Big Foot" Adler. From the pictures, I am not sure about the liner or chin strap. The color of the liner makes it look a little like some that are coming out of Latvia, but I can't tell for sure. Better interior shots would be very helpful. Jim G.

    Thank you very much for the quick reply. They are asking $830 - sounds kinda high to me with the liner issue. I was also suspect of the liner.

    The shell appears good to me, but the liner looks dodgy - like it's a replacement
    or it has been treated with something to age it - The chinstrap looks repro.

    The asking price will probably be alot more than it is really worth if the seller
    is claiming it to be genuine. I suppose a helmet like this should be around
    $800 - $1200, if real and 'unmessed with'.

    There will be more knowledgeable opinions on it, I'm sure.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Steve, i dont see the tell tail dot on the talon and my looking at the decal there is a marked difference between the two wing borders, both top and sides, is this normal for a Big Foot, also i agree that the liner looks suspect and the chin strap, i know it says its a Q but the numeral beside looks like an 8, am i reading too much into this, cheers dave

    You might just be.............!

    Myself, I see nothing wrong with this decal. The helmet stamp
    is 'Q66' I believe, which is a nice size lid...............

    Cheers for that Steve, I thought there was a thread on here some time ago about the differences with the wings that proved authenticity but i must be recalling it wrong
