Two Helmets?

Article about: These two helmets are being auction not far from me. Any thoughts on them? Sorry for the small pictures, I tried to get better ones but they haven't replied back yet. Thanks

    The pins on each helmet were different colors then the helmet.
    The heads of the split pins (rivets) were often different shades from the helmet color. They typically were ordered in from another factory with the heads pre-painted for assembly, which is why you would see that. So, it's not necessarily a red flag unless you see other signs of tampering with them.

    I went to the auction today and took a look at them. I decided to pass on bidding on them and not sure what they sold for.
    Well, that ended that line of enquiry! ....... maybe they will surface with another collector? ( probably with a nice story attached ) and we will do the dance once more.
