    Very happy with it all, price was great and it was practically on my doorstep. The only downside is I think the guy I bought all this from cleaned the helmet a bit before I got there..... This helmet was a surprise in that I only expected British stuff from what I was told, and it turned out to be a Quist M42, when I first saw it I thought it was an NS. I've wanted one for a while (funnily enough it's the second Q '42 I've handled in the last few weeks). It has a dark green brushed on paint that I need some more expertise to judge. It has no smell and looks to have been on it a long time in hand. It had a liner in it for quite a while by the look of the interior, sadly gone now.

    Thanks for looking folks, I was supposed to stop buying for a while. Anyone else ever told themselves that?

    I tell my wife all the time I will stop buying. But, I never tell myself that

    Are you sure he leaned it or is that brushed on paint?

    I regularly tell my girlfriend too, but I half promised myself the next helmet I seek out would be an SS. Since this one found me I have justified it in my head

    Yep it's definitely brushed on, I only have one helmet with a brushed on paintjob so I wanted other opinions. I got the impression he gave it a wipe down as it was sat on a grubby towel next to his sink in the kitchen when I arrived.

    Very nice. I quite like the brushed paint look. Is the inside rim in the brushed on green as well?

    I to am not buying at the moment, but my wife just gave me an inch with saying I can spent what's in the paypal account. Happy days, now I just need to find an SS for $50

    An SS helmet is hopefully my next helmet. I'd be happy with a SD M42 with a decent decal. That would satisfy me for a little while, maybe a month or so. . I just have to stop buying little things between now and then, or else I won't have any savings.

    Thanks Jason, the inside is not painted the same as the outside no. In fact it looks like it's just an anti-rust wash. Very thin, almost dark turquoise in colour. I can't see a dome stamp but were they even bothering by this point?

    You are correct sir! We need a help club, like they have for alcoholics and such. This is a true addiction.
