    Putting it out in the sun for several months will

    This is one that I would avoid at all costs. The liner and strap are fake. The Camo in the second picture is over the rivet, so to me it is obvious that the Camo is bad. The small portion of the decal that is showing certainly looks bad. To me it is just a real shell with post war components added to deceive. Sorry, but I don't like anything about it. Jim G.

    The liner is dry not too brittle, but missing a finger towards the rear. The band underneath is aluminum with heavy oxidation and rust all around it plus on it from the helmet?

    Hi, the guy's are bang on I'm afraid, this is a re-worked shell and not an original SS cammo. The over paint is trying to look like wood chip, but it just does not look right at all and has no age to it. Leon.
