And thank you all for your time. I always knew it looked a little off.
Yes there are rubber or other material buffers in place, also the front of the liner is double stitched, only just noticed, its in two pieces!!!
Cool man. Well I was actually trying to find out how authentic it was to try and sell it. Now knowing that it's not of a quality I'd feel comfortable selling I suppose a Collection might be an interesting idea.
This piece was something my parents bought at auction when I was a teenager. Dont recall them paying more than $50 or so for it.
sell it to obkrieger,,he is looking for a project helmet,,,
Dont forget, you have an original shell that might have original paint underneath, try to strip a small section around the inside skirt and see what happens, if its a different colour then strip the whole thing carefully and in small stages taking care not to remove the original paint work, you may be pleasantly surprised and the helmet would have been worth the$50 spent, remove the liner, keep the pins and you have the start of a collection
