The paint, shell, and decal look good to me. The liner and chinstrap are lightly aged fakes IMO.
Looking for WWII U.S. dog tags
I'd like a better look at that chinstrap, I can't judge it from the pictures provided.
Just a quick update - The seller sent me the maker and lot numbers, it appears to be an EF66 shell with lot number 15358, any further opinions on the decal would be appreciated as we now know that it is an EF lid?Correct decal for an EF helmet , I'd say the chinstrap is the only liability. Strange to read all these negative replies concerning the decal.
Thanks in advance, Chris.
If anyone has access to a lot number database or can point me in the right direction I might be able to get an idea of it's authenticity,
Thanks in advance,
The lotnr database won't help you with regards to authenticity. Like I said it's a good decal and helmet , bad strap.
I stand by my opinion.
I can't find a decal like that one. Anyone have a photo of a that decal that's been authenticated?
Thanks. I'll have to sit and so some refreshing of my mental database
