    Default Liner pins. Good or bad?

    I bought these liner pins a few years ago with the intention of restoring a relic lid but drifted away from the idea eventually. I have a sneaking suspicion they're bad but would want to run them past the forum first. Now I know early pins can well be of brass construction but I also recall reading somewhere that the 'folded over' nature of the heads of the pins is a bad sign. There are no date stamps on any of these so I'm leaning towards a 'bad' vote.

    From those pics they look like a good set of early brass rivets and washers.

    I'm not the most experienced guy here, but I would say that they are good. You should however, wait for some more opinions.

    Hi Glenn, I must admit that I have never had one of the brass pins off from a helmet , but to me they look good, but as I say , I have never seen the underside so I may be wrong! Leon.
