    Although not a helmet guy either(anymore), I feel good as my thoughts concur with the others and felt so before reading their opinions. None are great examples of the fkaers art.

    Hi , well un-surprisingly I to agree that there is not one decent original cammo in the "original 3" posted here. Two re-painted relics and one ruined decent helmet! Oh by the way Ben , you let a real beauty go , but I guess we all let something go and regret it later at some point. Leon.

    Loved this thread i too am new to this (although 30 +years ago i collected but was only a kid) and I can honestly say when looking at the pics my first thoughts were that number2 was not as it should be and to my mind stood out like a sore thumb compared to the other two wasn't to sure on 1 & 3 so would have seeked advice on those. Pretty pleased with myself really as at least all this reading and learning is giving me more confidence in making informed decisions.

    You know DougB I'm getting better at this. I've been looking at the helmets without reading any of the comments and trying to form my own opinion, then seeing what the general consensus is. Sometimes I'm at odds with the group, sometimes not, but in this case I independently reached the same decision you did. Painted relic (the cammo'ed interior is a dead giveaway, no?) mechanical artificial wear (and what looks like an airbrush paintjob to me) and a really obvious dug relic enhanced with paint.
    People who enhance relics with paint make me madder than the "add-a-decal" fakers. Decals are simple to remove. Relics have stories of their own and need no paint or fake decals to make them more exciting. History in your hand, as it were.
