    Im having a hard time looking at this one, to me theres some areas that look like pitted rust yet its painted over,i cant see if its a textured finish or rusting, yet other areas look smooth, also the liner pins look too clean as opposed to the rest of the helmet, the double stamped E im not sure about, i havent seen a marking like that before even though it could be a mistake so i would bow to the more experienced , they might be more associated with faults that occur on helmets than i am. I would like to see other comments, as for the liner its a nine fingered M31 which isnt unusual for a large helmet

    The pitting you mentioned is rust, the previous owner coated this helmet with some type of oil that i quickly wiped off after purchasing but i could'nt get all of it off, there for, theres a slight shine to it, pins are tight and untampered with, i assure you there's nothing tampered with on this one.

    Thanks for that mate, im glad the close ups show better detail, it was somewhat confusing , re texture or rust, shame that he decided to coat it with oil, it could damage what paint there is but its an interesting lid with the error mark
