Not liking it chin strap is a copy, shell may be repainted dug up but cant tell from photos shown
Based on those pics, I'd leave it where is.
Not because i am an expert on FJ lids, but because when I see a lack of even half decent photos, I get suss.
It may just be me, but I whenever I see this kind of pic quality, alarm bells ring for me.
Thanks guys. As it turns out, this isn't local. Its a scam. The seller posted on the Detroit Metro Craigslist, but actually lives in Poland. Oh well.
Todd did the seller goes by the name ( Pawel T Nowak ) by chance.
Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.
Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!
Yes, yes he did. Here's the email I received when I inquired about better photos:
Thanks for your quick answer. I send the photos of my collection.
I live Poland (EU) now. I lived in US for almost 2 years but i already got back home to Poland (EU). And i have an interest in WW2 history for a long time. From time to time i take my metal detector and detect places of historical interest and local battlefields. I mostly collect german daggers and helmets.
I have 100% positive feedback on our EU auction site Allegro:

I send 2/3 parcels to US each month.

Well known con artist(s). Discussed often here. Good that you caught it. He (they) typically posts on Craigslist.
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
