    that mustve been one hell of an attic

    it looks original to me, but the chinstrap isnt. get a picture of the liner too, these arent the best.

    looks to be a original helmet,,,220 Euros is way too much for a rust bucket like that, in my opinion

    Recognize the helmet? This came out of the ground in Estonia, not an attic, and when I bought it from the guy who dug it up it didn't have a liner or chinstrap. I know who I sold this helmet to but ..... where did you buy this helmet Williamsong?

    Hi Jim,
    Well spotted, but I suppose it is fairly distinctive. It all depends on what liner etc has been stuffed in it. The dishonesty about it coming from an attic, is less appealing than its true history to me.
