    I'm pretty positive that it is legit, but would love opinions. ET64

    Some nice clear outside daylight shots would help, but a known pattern in known colors and very likely a winner.

    I'm happy to hear that I'm not alone on this one. I paid 350 CAD for it and it's in the mail on its way to me. I'll post better pics when I get it home!

    CAD$ 350??? Wow. If good, that is a steal.

    John has a great eye and way more qualified than me, especially on camo helmets which are a minefield, but while the pictures are lacking in quality (which is a must) I too think that is has a good chance.

    Others may disagree, but I actually like what appears to be white paint skid marks OVER the camo. Shows it that it was probably sitting in a closet and got banged up against a painted wall or something like that.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    Agree with Michael. .. White spots and scuffs on helmets are actually your friend!

    Personally, I like it. A very attractive helmet.

    Hello and welcome to the forum, I personally like the look of this one from what we can see. As said, some nice sharp detailed images of the cammo will be needed to be sure, but I think you have struck gold! Well done Leon.

    It does look like a good one from what can be seen. At 350 Canadian you are not taking much of a risk! Post some good pictures when you get it.

    Welcome to the forum nice to see another fellow Canuck here as stated at $ 350 Cdn if it all checks out you got a hell of a deal on a camo.
    The helmet body looks to have a little bit of a shine on it from handling if I can make a suggestion when you take outdoor pics include a few that are not in direct sunlight to help to diffuse the light a little.

    Regards Mark
    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 !!!!!
