    Default Opinion on M42 camo helmet?

    Hello all. I am a new member here and would like to ask for your opinions on this camo helmet?
    For me it is hard to judge if the paint is original or not. What do you think?


    Regards
    Sander

    Tough, it has a chance. The liner has been out of it at one time though. What is the source?

    I was just looking at this one on ebay this morning. I got sidetracked and didn't post it
    The thing that bothered me was the liner pins. They have been messed with. Also, the camo is under the skirt. Typically, the camo is only on the outer shell. Too many red flags for me. There are some VERY convincing fakers on eBay , so be careful, Sander
    Oh, And, "Welcome!!".

    I'm not comfortable with the pins. They show signs of being re bent. I'll leave the paint to more experienced Camo collectors. It's not in my comfort zone right now.

    Edit: to add to deans observations, the paint goes onto the underside of the skirt but none appears to be on the liner leather. Id walk away at this point.

    -Edit-

    By "scary", I mean its scary how these can be so tricky to tell wether real or not

    Buying a camo on eBay is like shopping for luxury brand name products in a street fair in Taiwan.

    Got to admit the first helmet could fool a great many people, but apart from the pins ,which IMO have been out at least once, the liner band does'nt match the condition of the helmet, the springs in particular have no age to them whereas the pins and washers show corrosion and none on the band, the second helmet again has its faults, namely the almost clean untouched liner which certainly does'nt match the overall condition of the interior
