    Did you buy this one from the same source as the white camo?

    Again, poor quality photos but I think they are enough to call this one bad as well.

    The better pictures are required for making a decission. But again, sometimes 100% original could get a negative opinions ( concerning a paint)
    I did not see the problems with just a strange color scheme, but the world is full of hundreds professionally aged helmets. Let's look at the close up pictures.

    Jamie, i think what Eric is saying is good sense really, if the seller cannot, or will not provide large, up close pictures, it casts doubts on originality, and therefore it is better to walk away. The price has great bearing on if it is considered real by the seller, no matter what he paid for it at the start. If he believes it is 100% without question, then the price will reflect that.
    I agree that better pictures are needed in order to make an informed honest, un-biased judgement on it, but honestly, i don't get a warm feeling with this one.

    Pictures sell an item, and therefore should be of excellent quality.
