    Its junk. For an extra $150 you can have a nice fire police helmet.

    That's what I thought just wanted to make sure before I left the piece. chicken wire looks added and helmet looks a little off from the little I know. Thanks so much guys!

    Hi Beau, that is a terrible "pimped up" mess, leave it well alone mate. Leon.

    A real one of these sells for $5000. Fakes like this sell for $150. Read some of the pinned threads on buying helmets.

    Only the liner makes you nervous ? There are Original helmets in much better condition than this cheap piece of fake.
    If you expect to find a complete combat helmet for 150$ you will end up with a collection of fakes.
    Accept the prices as they are and buy a decent helmet from the collectors selling on this and other trustworthy forums.

    Good thing you didn't rush out and buy this one Beau, you have the sense to ask questions first and your initial doubts were spot on.

    This one would leave a sour taste in your mouth.
