Fake/Modern Rust?

Article about: If he is selling it on Flea bay he knows it's a repro , a real one in relic conditions will still go for a large amount and wouldn't be getting sold in the helmet cess pit !!

    Default Fake/Modern Rust?

    Hi everyone, i know this picture isnt the best to work off, but im wondering if you agree that the rust doesn't look right on this helmet?
    Seller also says there are no markings he can see?

    Thanks

    This must be fake, mostly because of the type of helmet, is this on Ebay?

    Was on eBay. To be fair, the guy was selling it stating he had a feeling it was a repro as the rust looks a little even. I just wanted it for display as i'll never be able to afford a real one!

    Im 99% its a repro, but there's always that 1% chance, so im not disappointed if it comes and is a real blinder.

    I doubt it, i was bidding one on of his relic m40's and won, then just put a bid on this and won it. The price i paid for it kind of hardens my though that its a repro.
