    M'mmmm salty, I like it - maybe some whitewash residue around the rivets??? which may mean Russian front rather than North Africa.

    I concur with Dan, it looks right straight away to me.

    I'm usually paranoid about camo's -what with 9 out of 10 being faked, of late, but I have to admit, this one looks like the real deal to me also.

    That's a thundering big Dent in the dome of it too-I don't think the guy wearing it at the time liked it too much...

    I give it a chance. I like the patina of the paint.

    You're right Will, whatever it was, it was motoring! Looks like from back to front to me, it almost appears to have stress fractures emanating from either side and curving inwards as they travelled forward. Not the sort of thing I'd expect from a faker with a lump hammer, it looks real.

    I'm not feeling good about this one. Better photos are needed.

    Depends on which ten you look at of course ;-)
    I don't think this one is a one looker , better photos of the paint are needed. Is there a sign of a decal ?

    Hi there,it,s a tough call on the originality of the "cammo" on this one, i can,t really see the texture of the paint or any signs of a decal underneath it.Also i note that there are a lot of scratches to the surface that are of a uniform size,that is usually a red flag to me.The dent also does not look like a ordanance strike as the paint is intact in that area,it's more like it has been run over by a very heavy vehicle,the helmets whole shape has been distorted in the last picture!! I think on the whole i would pass on this one,just my opinion, Leon.

    I can see why folk are saying it's good and agree with Leon it could be a tough call but for me the wear doesn't sit correctly or in the right areas for such a well worn , salty , combat worn lid , i'd also like to see some closer shots of the paintwork,

    cheers
