don't like how someone has sanded back the batch number and the maker mark. I think that's sad.
Someone destroy nice helmet..
nice lid, shame about the sanding
I am most disgruntled by this.

Hey, just my humble opinion.
It's in much better condition than some of the helmets we see. Yes, it's a shame what they did but if the price is right, it will still display well. It's not like the sanding killed the authenticity of it like putting a fake decal or fake paint
Yea it's not for me, but for others at the right price it could work.
Standard Disclaimer: viewing this from a cell phone so pics are not all that clear. I'm assuming the rest of the helmet is legit.

I agree with Michael. It is a shame about the sanding. But I have seen worse thing done to helmets on this site. Who knows maybe this will bring the price down and make it a bargain. It looks like an honest helmet that still would display nicely.
I'd scoop it up in a heartbeat if the price was right...
