    Looks all original. From these images. A nice stock standard. SE m35

    I'm not comfortable with this helmet based on these sub par, grainy photos. Signs of pitting on the shell. The liner and band almost look to be protruding out of the dome, as if they are too big for the shell. And for a shell with pitting and wear, the liner band is fairly clean and shiny. And the strap looks like a fake. That's what I see in these photos. I would not buy it based on these photos.

    Hi, well I think that the M35 is a factory re-furb example with the later helmet liner band fitted. As for the leather components, I too am unsure about them as the leather liner appear to protrude a touch and I am not keen on the heavily rusted chinstrap parts. Better images are a must really for this one to be sure about that liner. Leon.

    Dear all,

    Thank you so much for your advices. Which photos would be necessary? It's a question of resolution too?

    Leon, what do you mean by later liner band? That band is the second model reinforced aluminum band.

    Better pics all around would help. Yes the resolution on these photo is very bad.

    Hi, that's what I meant, rather than the earlier "square" bale type. Leon.
