    Hi All,
    What do you guys make of this liner, legit or not? I have seen a few recently with the RBN number printed on but none of mine seem to have it?

    The leather is not good in my opinion.

    Thanks gents,
    Wasn't liking the look of it either - Do you know if original liners ever have the RBN stamp??
    Cheers,
    Chris.

    Yes they were labeled with RBNr. This one is missing the lower case "r" which I imagine should be on there, so it makes me suspicious. The thread in the stitching also looks very new by the white color. I'd say its an artificially aged repro.

    Have to agree with all - a put-together helm. Felt is also wrong on inside band ( section beneath the RBN ) ..... in fact, doesn't even look like felt!
