    Default need opinion on this camo helmet!

    Hello dear members,
    i've just won an item i thought i would'nt win.. and i would like to have your opinion about it
    coming from ebay spot the helmet 5 min before the bids end and i decide to take the risk ...
    not enough time to ask for more pics ..
    there is an 8 days return policy on it so if it 's not correct i will send it back.
    that's why i need your help again!
    as soon as i have it in hand i'll make more pictures of it

    my feeling is that the shell is good, the liner too, chinstrap maybe
    and the camo is my concern ...
    i think this helmet has been overcleaned

    thanks a lot to all of you for your inputs

    best regards

    It was certainly a leap of faith putting in a bid with only these pictures to go off.
    Ebay & genuine camo helmet? The two just don't go hand in hand!

    I don't think any positive opinions can be given based on these two pictures. Know they are not yours but they are terrible and probably meant to deceive. I'm not liking what little I can see of the chin strap and the stamp on the liner looks odd. The camo? Well IMHO (there are others with more knowledge) looks contrived with fake wear.

    Good photos may prove me wrong, but if this is all I had to go on, I wouldn't have gambled and dealt with the hassle of trying to get $ back.

    The Shell is good, but the liner,chinstrap and paint all look Ungood...

    Hi, I am sorry to say that this was not a gamble that has paid off. The cammo is modern paint work and the chinstrap is a fake, no chance of this being a good original cammo M42 I'm afraid. Leon.

    Use the 8 days return policy asap , no photoshoot will make this helmet more than the fake camo it is.
